The Drought Planning, Response & Recovery: A Colser Look at SB552 training will be held on the following date and time:

April 23 2:00PM-4:00PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.

Small water systems in California have entered a new era of drought planning and reporting. Senate Bill 552 mandates new actions be taken by state, county and small water suppliers-do you know what to do? There are new responsibilities to reduce the risk of inadequate water supply during a water shortage event. We will identify potential water shortage risks for small water suppliers and rural communities, and we will explore some of the requirements and resources along the road to improved drought resilience..

Participants will learn:

·        New requirements in California's Drought Resilience and Water Shortage Response

·        Online tools for exploring and identifying water shortage risks

·        Communication and coordination guidance for water supplier, customers, and government

·        Planning strategies and resources for water shortage vulnerability and disaster preparedness

Regulation Basics Series: The recommended audience includes operators, managers, board members, and elected officials.


This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
