Additionally, attendees can take advantage of lessons learned in regards to FEMA response, EOC coordination for critical information (local GIS systems), water quality issues and the importance of working with the State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking Water (DDW) for effective communication with rate payers. Lastly, discover potential grant funding opportunities for hazard mitigation, affected agency watershed recovery efforts as well as ACWA’s current efforts to help agency members better prepare for potential natural disasters.
