EPA Webinar-Releases to Sources of Drinking Water

On May 13, 2021, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm (ET), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a webinar on “Releases to Sources of Drinking Water: National Occurrence and Resources to Identify Risks.”

EPA’s description of webinar:

“Spills from storage tanks, transportation accidents, facility discharges and other hazards threaten many drinking water sources. To understand this risk, a study was conducted to assess the frequency of spills impacting sources of drinking water in the U.S.”

“The webinar will also provide recommendations and information about resources, specifically Drinking Water Mapping Application to Protect Source Water (DWMAPS), that can be used to identify and characterize potential sources of contamination to sources of drinking water. The information and resources presented during this webinar can inform the assessment of source water risks when performing AWIA Risk and Resilience Assessments.“
