EPA WSD Hosts 3-Part Webinar Series on Improving Response

EPA’s Water Security Division is hosting a three part webinar series for water and wastewater utilities and emergency management agencies to learn how to increase resilience and improve emergency response efforts.

Why is ASDWA telling you about this?  These discussions are very helpful for small systems that need to know the advantages of working with their local emergency management folks before something happens and how to receive support and assistance after something does!

ASDWA encourages you to participate and also share this learning opportunity with your water systems.
