Drinking Water 1-2-3 Academy

Starting in 2019, Metropolitan Planning Council and its partners have created a peer-to-peer learning exchange and local technical assistance program—called the Drinking Water 1-2-3 Academy—to further assist communities in implementing best practices featured in the Drinking Water 1-2-3 guide.

The goals of the Academy include:

  • Education and training on important water planning and management practices today

  • Development of a peer network for cross-community learning and collaboration

  • Targeted assistance and on-the-ground implementation of critical best practices in drinking water management

Registration is open for the 2019 regional events, and IEPA Drinking Water Operator Recertification Credits are available (4 CEUs) for each event:

Regional Event #4: Thursday, September 12, 2019, 8 a.m. to noon at the Barrington Park District. Held in partnership with the Barrington Area Council of Governments. Key event topics will include how to incorporate water supply management needs and goals into community comprehensive plans, and demand forecasting.

Thank you to our sponsors!
