Historically, utilities have faced challenges in developing and implementing SWP programs and activities because of their voluntary nature and a lack of broad understanding of the operational benefits of SWP programs. The recent SWP Justification Toolkit project was designed to help utilities build the business case for SWP programs, and this webinar goes a step further by recommending quantifiable measures to include in the business case. This also ties in with the final component of AWWA Standard G300, Source Water Protection: periodic evaluation and revision of the SWP program.
The purpose of this webinar is to establish a framework of performance criteria (a.k.a. metrics) for source water protection (SWP) programs and activities. Historically, many utilities have faced challenges in developing and implementing SWP efforts because of their voluntary nature and a lack of broad understanding of the operational benefits of SWP programs. AWWA recently developed materials through a 2018 Technical and Educational Council (TEC) project—including the SWP Justification Toolkit—to help utilities justify SWP efforts and build a business case for related programs and activities. This webinar is the next logical step, building on the TEC project toolkit by compiling and recommending quantifiable measures to track progress in meeting the goals of an SWP program and to include in making a business case for utilities and other decision makers. This webinar will address both qualitative and quantitative measures for evaluating SWP activities. Finally, this effort ties in with the ANSI/AWWA Standard G300, Source Water Protection, to periodically evaluate and revise SWP programs.
- Better understand how to quantify benefits of source water protection
- Review and obtain suggested metrics for measuring progress of SWP programs
