Building Community Based Water Resilience

The Water Security Division within U.S. EPA's Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water will conduct a webinar on building resilience to emergencies that may impact community drinking water and wastewater services.
Learn about the Community-Based Water Resiliency (CBWR) Tool with information on how drinking and wastewater utilities can work with other interdependent sectors to make their community more resilient.
In addition, you will learn about the new CBWR online training which aims to increase awareness of interdependencies and promote proactive community-level preparedness for water-related emergencies.
EPA will offer participants an opportunity to volunteer their community for an upcoming CBWR training or workshop. The CBWR trainings and workshops bring water utilities together with other interdependent sectors to prepare for a water service interruption before an emergency.
Drinking water and wastewater operators in eligible states may earn up to 1 hour of continuing education credit for attending, pending approval from state operator certification programs.
Note: Links and instructions will be sent to participants via email prior to the event. If you have additional questions, please contact us at WSD-Outreach@epa.gov.
If you require accommodations, please contact Karen Edwards-Lindsey at edwards-lindsey.karen@epa.gov or (202) 564-3797 by May 10, 2019.
