Title: Preparing for Treatment Works and Staying on Top of Wastewater
Day/Time: Thursday, 8/18 | 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Description: This presentation will be an overview of the wastewater world we live in today, including the needs and common problems TAPs encounter every day. We’ll present case studies and experiences concerning centralized and decentralized wastewater as references for overcoming mounting wastewater challenges. Ultimately, we will share our vision for how we see wastewater in the future and RCAP’s role in protecting the public and environmental health through our work. In this discussion, we will also share additional details and get feedback on the new Treatment Works (TW) program, better understand TAP and small, rural, and tribal community needs to inform future TW and EPA NPA2 proposals, and also share some highlights about the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding opportunities related to the Clean Water SRF.
