This EBC 4th 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, as well as other issues of concern.

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

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
