July 14, 2017

BATON ROUGE: EPA’s Office of Water is planning a Best Practice Webinar on Promoting Preparedness to Protect a Town’s Drinking Water on July 19th at 3:00 p.m. eastern. The presenter will be Jeri Weiss from EPA Region 1, and she will be discussing the Best Practice from our FY 2016 National Water Program Performance, Trends, and Best Practices Report. Region 1 worked with residents of Mattapoisett, Massachusetts and collected stories of the impacts of extreme weather events in their community. They used the stories and visual reminders of past hurricanes to highlight the need to develop an adaptation plan focusing on the threat to the town’s drinking water system from a storm surge inundating its drinking water wells.
