This EBC 2nd Annual Water Resources Leadership Conference will once again bring together the leadership of water programs for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and each of the six New England states.  This virtual water conference will provide an opportunity for the EPA and each state to review their respective water resources management plans, program priorities, and implementations strategies.

Included will be a discussion regarding the various ways the states are working together on regional water issues that include extreme weather events, drought, flooding, and other climate change related topics.

Speakers will cover their three to four water priorities for the year, including issues around:

  • Drinking water

  • Wastewater

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.
