Planning for Sustainability: US EPA Webcast Series for Water and Wastewater Utilities

May 01, 2012

Planning for Sustainability: US EPA Webcast Series for Water and Wastewater Utilities

Description

Effective planning is essential for utilities to sustainably manage their operations and ensure that water infrastructure investments are cost-effective over their life-cycle, resource efficient, and support other relevant community sustainability goals. In February, 2012, U.S. EPA issued Planning for Sustainability: A Handbook for Water and Wastewater Utilities. Developed with extensive input from utility managers, the Handbook describes a series of core elements and steps utilities can take to build sustainability considerations into their existing planning processes.

Please join us for the first of a series of webcasts, built around the core elements of the Handbook, describing how water and wastewater utilities can incorporate sustainability considerations into planning. The first webcast will provide an overview of the Handbook and include perspectives and examples from two utility managers that were involved in its development.
