EPA’s Challenges and Treatment Solutions for Small Water Systems Webinar Series
Oct 31 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Image result for epa logoEPA’s Office of Research and Development and Office of Water are hosting this monthly webinar series to communicate current small drinking water systems research along with Agency priorities. The series is providing a forum for EPA to communicate directly with state personnel and other drinking water small systems professionals, which allows EPA to provide training and foster collaboration and dissemination of information. This, in turn, provides state agencies with the information and resources they need to communicate the latest scientific advancements and current guidance to their small systems. The webinars are also providing EPA with invaluable information from the states on the problems that they are currently encountering in their interactions with small systems. EPA scientists and engineers can then modify their research to solve real-world small-systems problems.

Attendees have the option of receiving a certificate for one continuing education contact hour for each webinar. Acceptance of the certificates is contingent on state and/or organization requirements—EPA cannot guarantee acceptance.

Register online to participate in this bi-monthly EPA webinar or view their schedule for future events.
