EPA UCMR5 Webinar – February 2023

EPA will hold a webinar on the fifth Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR5) presenting:

“….information on accessing and communicating UCMR 5 monitoring results. The presentation will review the reporting requirements and data review functionality in EPA’s web-based Safe Drinking Water Accession and Review System (SDWARS) for large (i.e., those serving more than 10,000 people) and small (i.e., those serving 10,000 or fewer people) PWSs. The presentation will also discuss the plan for communicating results from small PWSs, how the public can access the UCMR 5 results in the National Contaminant Occurrence Database, and provide additional resources developed by EPA and other stakeholders to communicate results.”

The two hour webinar will be presented on Wednesday, February 22, 2023. The webinar will be presented again on February 23, 2023 at the same time.
