The Source Water Collaborative (SWC) will host a webinar entitled, “Linking Source Water Protection and Emergency Preparedness and Response.”  The webinar is part of the SWC’s Learning Exchange that includes a series of webinars such as this one, along with available resources, case studies, stories, and social media messages on a variety of source water protection related topics. This webinar will leverage the case study from the spill on the Potomac River (in Virginia) in November 2016 to provide recommendations for a variety of participants including water utilities, and federal, state, and local governments.

During the webinar, Alan Roberson (Source Water Collaborative Steering Committee Co-Chair and Executive Director of ASDWA) will provide some opening remarks, and Greg Prelewicz (Fairfax Water) and Steve Beiber (MWCOG) will provide a presentation about the Potomac River spill incident and lessons learned, and answer audience questions.  Participants will learn:

  • How to link source water protection and emergency preparedness and response
  • What worked and what didn’t work during/after the spill
  • How lessons learned can improve planning for emergency preparedness and response

For more information about the webinar, see the attached handout.  And stay tuned…new materials and resources on this topic will be posted on the SWC Learning Exchange web page in the near future.
