Description:

Part 1: Logistics of Regional Partnerships

Small water systems must meet the same regulations as large water systems without the economies of scale enjoyed by larger systems. Likewise, private well owners are stuck shouldering the operations and maintenance cost of their water equipment all on their own. The challenges of maintaining safe water quality, whether you are regulated or not, are not only expensive, but can be life threatening. Join us for an open discussion of how regionalization of drinking water utilities and private well communities has allowed for increased sustainability.

 

Participants will learn:

• Small system and private well challenges

• Benefits of regional solutions – what’s in it for me?

• Barriers and how to overcome them

• Options for partnership

 

Part 2: Regional Solutions to Complex Problems: Compliance, Eligibility and Timelines

RCAC staff specialists and guest speakers will comprise a panel to discuss the future of small water systems in California and how the Waterboards are supporting public water systems who are willing to explore regional solutions. A Question-and-Answer session will be provided for attendees to address the panel.

 

Participants will learn:

• About resources available from the Waterboards and technical assistance providers under current funding programs

• Consolidation incentives available

• Project ranking and funding eligibility

 

The recommended audience includes all water system managers, board members, private well owners and anyone interested in learning more about how cooperative partnerships can support delivering safe drinking water. We also invite regulators who would like to become more familiar with the process RCAC uses to facilitate regional solutions.
