Center for Climate and Energy Solutions – May 8, 2014

Water for Energy and Energy for Water: Challenges and Opportunities for Utilities is a series of three webinars sponsored by the Association for Metropolitan Water Agencies, the Water Information Sharing and Analysis Center, and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions intended to help utility managers address issues across the water-energy nexus.

Webinar 1 – An overview of water/energy issues from national and federal perspectives will be held on May 8, 2 p.m.–3 p.m. ET. Dr. Craig Zamuda from the Department of Energy (DOE) will present key findings from DOE’s recently released water/energy nexus report, attempting to distill some of the key issues and risks of which water and electric utilities should be aware.

Webinar/Workshops: 2014 Waters of the US


The Swamp School – April 22, May 6, and May 15, 2014

On March 25, 2014 the Obama administration unveiled a regulatory proposal that brings nearly all rivers, streams and creeks under the protection of the Clean Water Act and adds clarity on which wetlands would receive protection. This 371 page proposal significantly changes the regulatory landscape of what had become known as waters of the US. Specifically, this rule is aimed at clarifying which streams, creeks, wetland, bogs, swamps and marshes fall under federal jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act following two very confusing Supreme Court “decisions” in 2001 and 2006 that left both industry and agencies in a regulatory paradox. The Swamp School has prepared a complete clear and concise analysis of these new regulations. They are offering this in a series of online and interactive webinar workshops. They will be holding this workshop at three different times and dates to make is easy for you to attend. This webinar/workshop will be held on April 22, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. ET; May 6, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. EDT; and on May 15, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. For more information, click here.

Free Webinar on Water Quality Mobile Website "How's My Waterway"


U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – April 23, 2014

EPA will be hosting a free webinar on April 23, 2014 from 1:00pm- 2:00pm Eastern Time to detail the new enhancements to How's My Waterway, a mobile friendly website that enables users to easily access water quality information for their local lakes, rivers, and streams. The mobile friendly website has proven popular with the general public and more technical users alike because of its plain-English approach, map and list formats, simple design, and rapid retrieval of local-scale information. The enhanced version includes, among other things, drinking water source protection areas, watershed information, information on local permits that limit pollutant discharges, and National fish habitat partnerships to restore waterways to protect and improve fish habitats. EPA water scientist Doug Norton, who developed How's My Waterway, will discuss the new enhancements and provide practical examples of how the tool can be used by various audiences.For more information, click here.

Webinar: Climate-Smart Restoration in the Great Lakes: Design, Implementation and Case Studies


National Wildlife Federation and NOAA – April 3, 2014

The National Wildlife Federation and NOAA invite you to join this webinar, Climate-Smart Restoration in the Great Lakes: Design, Implementation and Case Studies, which will be held on April 3, 2014 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. EDT. This webinar will focus on using restoration projects as case studies to show how to determine the vulnerability of projects to potential climate change impacts as well as provide a suite of potential adaptation options to address those vulnerabilities. Although developed specifically for climate smart restoration in the Great Lakes, the general procedures should have broader applicability in other regions and can inform other coastal restoration projects.
