AWWA is offering two complimentary webinars on topics related to COVID-19. The first one is tomorrow - Friday, June 5 - from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. MT. It’s entitled “Workforce and COVID-19: Utility Solutions,” and registration is required to participate. While the coronavirus pandemic has created workforce challenges, it has also presented an opportunity to learn how utilities are meeting these challenges. Creating a sustainable and resilient water workforce is a major priority for AWWA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and a host of other national water organizations. Utilities will share their successes, challenges and lessons learned from responding to workforce challenges during the pandemic. The second webinar is on Wednesday, June 10, from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. MT. It’s entitled “Returning to Service: Addressing Water Quality in Buildings with Low or No Use,” and registration is required to participate. The reduced water usage in buildings, businesses and schools that have been closed for months has potentially created stagnation in building plumbing. Turning on the water for immediate use after it has been stagnant can pose a risk to public health if not properly managed. This webinar will provide an overview of the newly released EPA guidance on this issue, how to leverage data to target buildings with usage decline and what the best ways are to communicate this information to decision-makers reopening communities. Questions about the workforce webinar can be directed to Chad Weikel , AWWA's manager of education and workforce. Questions about the returning to service webinar can be directed to Dawn Flancher , AWWA’s senior manager of technical & research programs.
