Event description

Description

This workshop is intended to improve overall community preparedness for emergencies that may affect drinking water and wastewater service. The workshop objectives include:

  • Promote a better understanding of public-private sector interdependencies.

  • Foster a greater understanding of water infrastructure and the potential impacts from a loss of service.

  • Identify actions and resources needed to respond to and recover from a water emergency.

  • Assist stakeholders in building strong response plans for water service interruptions.

The agenda will include presentations on water resiliency, panel discussions, and a water emergency scenario break-out activity.

Continuing education hours will be available to drinking water and wastewater operators, pending state approval.

Lunch will be available for purchase (range $7-10, TBD) at the workshop. Cash in small bills will be appreciated.

This event is being planned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Vermont Rural Water Association (VRWA), Massachusetts Water Works Association (MWWA), Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), Granite State Rural Water Association, and New England Water Works Association (NEWWA).
