Additionally, check out this resource from the Environmental Protection Agency: EJ Webinar on “Understanding What’s in My Drinking Water” on 11/18/21, 6 pm (EST)
EPA invites you to attend the fifth and final virtual environmental justice (EJ) webinar on Thursday, November 18, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm EST. The topic is, “Understanding What’s in My Drinking Water,” in our series called Growing Grassroots: Building Capacity for EJ Work. During this webinar, we hope you will learn about 1) different roles and responsibilities related to drinking water quality, 2) water quality reporting, and 3) EPA’s tool, “How’s My Waterway,” which is a tool designed to provide the public with information about the condition of their local waters based on data that states, federal, tribal, local agencies and others have provided to EPA. As one can see from the flyer, diverse speakers will be from non-profits, academia, a drinking water utility, a state agency, and EPA.
You may register for the free webinar here.
