ASDWA, ACWA, and GWPC Present the Clean Water Act-Safe Drinking Water Act Toolkit for State, Interstate, Tribal, and Federal Water Program Managers – An Introductory Webinar
January 20, 2015
Want to know more about how to better integrate drinking water and wastewater issues as you work with water systems in your state?
ASDWA, in concert with ACWA (Association of Clean Water Agencies) and GWPC (Ground Water Protection Council), have been collaborating to show how state and Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) and Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) program staff and managers can more routinely and more intentionally coordinate CWA and SDWA activities to achieve improvements in the quality of our waters.
On Tuesday, February 3, the three Associations will be sharing the results of this collaboration – a new CWA-SDWA Toolkit. Join ASDWA, ACWA, and GWPC to learn more about the background and perspectives that went into its formation and anticipated use.
DATE: Tuesday, February 3
TIME: 1:00-2:30PM (eastern)
REGISTRATION: There is no advance registration required. At the time of the webinar click this link:

This Toolkit offers new ways for you to think about how to help small drinking water systems to be proactive in source water protection and reap the financial efficiencies that pollution reduction can bring. This Toolkit:
- identifies opportunities to reduce pollution in drinking water sources by using CWA tools;
- provides examples of on-the-ground implementation, and is intended to help readers understand how they can work across program lines and agency boundaries;
- demonstrates how program managers can align their efforts to protect source water through a combination of actions and institutional relationships that facilitate cross-program coordination at the national, regional, state, and watershed scales to achieve common objectives; and
- shows how state clean water programs can leverage the high value consumers place on public health protection and safe drinking water to increase public support for addressing surface and ground water quality challenges more effectively.
