April 9, 1:00pm – 2:30pm (eastern)
Watershed, Forest and Source Water Protection Webinar
The purpose of this webinar is to provide information regarding the various functions forests perform in protecting drinking water. The discussion will focus on the forest cover and treatment cost relationship, ecosystem services, US Forest Service’s “Forest to Faucet” effort, and the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities’ approach on Beneficiaries Pay.
April 30, 1:00pm – 2:30pm (eastern)
The Impacts of Nutrient Pollution on Drinking Water Quality Webinar
The primary goals of the webinar are to: explain the linkages between cultural eutrophication and source water quality; and explore a regulatory basis for limiting the adverse effects of cultural eutrophication on drinking water quality. Case studies for preventive or protective chlorophyll criteria from Colorado (established) and New York (proposed) will be presented. Linking source water quality to drinking water quality creates a bridge between the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.
