Twenty-five years after the close of the Second World War, U.S. industrial production was roaring and the country was growing without proper attention to waste streams. Smog, acid rain, polluted waters, industrial sites, and a distressed natural environment were impacting communities across the country. The Environmental Protection Agency was established in 1970 and the Clean Air Act passed that same year. Two years later, the Clean Water Act was enacted. Through the past fifty years, the emphasis and priorities of the EPA has morphed and each generation has “woken up” to the challenges of their day.

This EBC New Hampshire webinar will celebrate the accomplishments of the United States Environmental Protection Agency over the past half century and will look to the future of the agency and the work still to be done.

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

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
