The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created NutrientSmark, or “NSmart,” a proposed voluntary program to help water resource recovery facilities and their watershed partners progress toward reducing nutrients in bodies of water. The EPA’s Office of Water and the NSmart Steering Committee are hosting an interest and information webinar to introduce a proposed voluntary recognition program for wastewater treatment facilities, communities and other stakeholders and potential partners that have reduced or are working toward reducing nutrient loadings to streams, rivers, lakes and other surface waters.
The webinar will provide background information and answer your questions on the different ways to participate and be recognized as NSmart and gauge your interest in NSmart. The EPA wants to know how best to engage with stakeholders and make NSmart recognition valuable to you, your ratepayers, partners and local communities.
There are two opportunities to participate in the webinar:
- Wednesday, April 10, 1-2 p.m. (EDT)
- Thursday, April 11, 3-4 p.m. (EDT)
