Manual Explains How to Integrate Water and Waste Programs

EPA has released a manual entitled "Integrating Water and Waste Programs to Restore Watersheds: A Guide for Federal and State Project Managers." This manual is targeted primarily to project managers in water and waste programs who are working on assessment or cleanup projects in watersheds contaminated by hazardous materials or waste. The manual is also a helpful reference document for stakeholders involved in watershed cleanup efforts. The goal of the manual is to enhance coordination across EPA and state waste and water programs by identifying opportunities for streamlining requirements, leveraging resources, and implementing restoration activities more efficiently. This manual provides valuable guidance and information to enable effective use of water and waste program authorities and resources to restore and protect watersheds. The manual is available at
