This training will help community drinking water systems learn about the requirements of America’s Water Infrastructure Act(AWIA). On October 23, 2018 AWIA was signed into law.  AWIA Section 2013 requires CWSs serving more than 3,300 people to develop or update risk and resilience assessments (RRAs) and emergency Response plans (ERPs).  The law specifies the components that the RRAs and ERPs must address and establish deadlines by which water systems must certify to EPA completion of the RRA and ERP.  This training is geared towards communities 10,000 and less in population to provide information on the requirements in completing the RRA’s and ERPs.
