The EPA is conducting free webinars on April 15, May 13, and June 17, 2020, from noon to 2:00 p.m. CST.


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is presenting a series of technical assistance webinars to highlight best practices for optimizing performance at small wastewater treatment systems and public drinking water systems.


The webinar on April 15 will cover the core concepts of asset management, how to prioritize system needs, how to secure funding, what resources are available for small communities, and who to go to for help. The concepts and practices of asset management apply to both wastewater and drinking water systems. The webinar will also cover operations and maintenance topics.


The webinar on May 13 will cover the CWA (Clean Water Act) NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) Compliance Assistance for Public Drinking Water Systems, while the June 17 webinar will cover When Small POTWs (Publicly Owned Treatment Works) Should Establish a Pretreatment Program.


During all three webinars attendees will be able to ask questions via a chat box.
