Free Webcast on EPA's Draft Water Climate Change Strategy
On Thursday, May 8, EPA will host a free Webcast from 2:30 to 4:30 pm ET to discuss EPA's Draft National Water Program Strategy: Response to Climate Change. The agency recently distributed this draft strategy and is now seeking comment until May 27, 2008. The draft strategy represents an initial effort by EPA's National Water Program to identify potential impacts of climate change for clean water and drinking water programs, and to define actions both to adapt water programs to these impacts as well as to mitigate the release of greenhouse gases. The Webcast will highlight some of the key impacts on water resources and water programs and proposed actions.
