EBC 3rd Annual Summit of the US EPA and New England State Water and Wastewater Leaders

What to Expect from Agencies Trying to Manage Our Continuing and Emerging Water Pollution Threats

This EBC 3rd Annual Water and Wastewater Leadership Conference will once again bring together the leadership of programs for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and each of the six New England states. This virtual conference will provide an opportunity for the EPA and each state to review their respective program priorities and implementation strategies.

Included will be a discussion regarding the various ways the states are working on local concerns and together on regional water issues.  Speakers will cover their priorities for the year, including issues concerning:

  • Key Changes or Priorities for Stormwater Permitting Programs
  • PFAS and Other NPDES and Pretreatment Discharge Permitting Developments
  • Infrastructure Priorities and Opportunities

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