The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the second public teleconference of the Water Security Working Group (WSWG) of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC), which was established under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
The purpose of this teleconference call is to provide an opportunity for the WSWG members to continue deliberations on their draft report and recommendations on features of active and effective security programs for the water sector (drinking water and wastewater utilities), including incentives to encourage broad adoption of active and effective security programs and measures to track the performance of water security programs.
The teleconference will be open to the public by advance registration; an opportunity for public comment will be provided during that time. WSWG findings and recommendations will be provided to the NDWAC for their consideration.
The WSWG anticipates providing findings and recommendations to the NDWAC in spring 2005. The WSWG has met in-person four times and had one previous public teleconference. One additional in-person meeting of the WSWG and one additional public teleconference are planned and will be announced in the near future.
The second WSWG teleconference will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., eastern standard time, on Thursday, April 7, 2005.
