EPA & USDA Webinar on Sustainable Management for Small Systems

Many rural and small water systems throughout the country struggle with various issues, including aging or inadequate infrastructure, difficulties recruiting or retaining qualified staff, growing or establishing financial reserves, and setting rates that reflect their true operational costs.  EPA’s Office of Wastewater Management (OWM) and USDA’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS) have worked collaboratively on a number of tools appropriate for these systems and invite you to participate in a train-the-trainer webinar to learn more.

TITLE:  Sustainable Management of Rural and Small Systems – Training the Trainer Webinar

DATE:  January 15, 2015

TIME:   Noon-3:30PM (eastern)


Focusing on two recently developed tools – the Rural and Small Systems Guidebook to Sustainable Utility Management (Guidebook) and Workshop in a Box materials, – participants will learn how to use them effectively in working with small systems. This webinar will be geared toward USDA Rural Development, EPA, and state program field staff as an introduction to the materials.

Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with both the Guidebook and the Workshop in a Box in advance.  Please go to http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/UWP-WorkshopSupplementalMaterials.html and download these materials.
