WaterISAC hosted a free webinar on Wednesday, February 13 at 3 p.m. ET on the risk assessment and emergency response plan requirements under the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA). Attendees learned about these new requirements, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plans for implementation and guidance, and tools that will be available to help utilities.
- David Travers and Dan Schmelling from EPA’s Water Security Division discussed the requirements under the act and describe how EPA will implement them. They also addressed the certification process and described the resources that EPA is developing to help utilities comply with the new requirements.
- Kevin Morley of the American Water Works Association discussed AWWA standards, such as AWWA’s J100 risk assessment standard, and tools available to water utilities.
The webinar recording and slides are available below.
