The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and Kansas Municipal Utilities (KMU) are sponsoring a free one-day virtual workshop to assist community (drinking) water systems (CWSs) with developing or updating Emergency Response Plans (ERPs) in accordance with America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (AWIA) Section 2013(b). AWIA Section 2013(b) requires CWSs serving more than 3,300 people to develop or update ERPs that incorporates the findings of their risk and resilience assessment. The law specifies the components that ERPs must address and establishes deadlines by which water systems must certify to EPA completion of the ERP. This virtual workshop will provide a broad overview of the requirements and the new EPA ERP Template and Instructions that will assist water utilities with developing an ERP in accordance with AWIA Section 2013(b). The workshop will also provide more
detailed information on specific response areas such as utility preparedness among others.

Who Should Attend: 
While this virtual workshop is designed for CWSs serving greater than 3,300 people, all CWSs, as well as vendors and consultants, especially those who are assisting CWSs in achieving the requirements of AWIA Section 2013, are welcome to attend.

Kansas water and wastewater operators will receive five hours for participating in this virtual workshop.
