EPA Webinar DW Models

On Wednesday, November 18, 2020 the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Research and Development will present a webinar from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, ET, on “Drinking Water Models and Tools” (announcement ToolsWebinar_Flyer_DWModelsTools).

Here is the EPA’s description of the webinar:

“Multiple models and tools have been developed by EPA’s Office of Research and Development to help communities improve the quality of their drinking water. Some support the treatment process by predicting the effectiveness of different processes in removing contaminants or achieving treatment goals, while others focus on the water distribution system by enabling the design of new infrastructure, optimizing operations, and determining contaminant fate and transport. Recently, EPA developed a new model that can be used to help determine if there is potential for contaminants, such as lead or Legionella, to occur in premise plumbing within buildings and homes.”
