ASDWA and EPA’s Water Security Division are teaming up to present a webinar that will consider how state primacy agencies can work with both their state hazard mitigation offices and their utilities to promote, fund, and implement hazard mitigation projects. Mitigation is important for smaller systems as it can help recurring disasters (like flooding at the treatment plant) from happening again and may provide funding to achieve the goal – a perfect example of TMF in action!
DATE: Thursday, September 15, 2016
TIME: 1:00-2:30PM (eastern)
The webinar will include examples of successful state agency coordination that results in utilities implementing appropriate mitigation measures. This will also be states’ first opportunity to view a demonstration of EPA’s newly released tool, Hazard Mitigation for Natural Disasters: A Starter Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities.
The target audience and discussion focus for this event is state drinking water programs. Other events are planned to share these materials with other members of the water community.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
