Join EPA for a free Watershed Academy webinar to learn about EPA's new recreational water quality criteria on January 30, 2013, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. EST. EPA recently recommended new recreational water quality criteria for states that will help protect peoples' health during visits to beaches and other recreational waters year-round. The science-based criteria provide information to help states improve public health protection by providing similarly protective recommendations for both marine and fresh waters, encouraging early alerts to beachgoers and promoting rapid water testing. The new criteria do not impose any new requirements; instead, they are a tool that states can choose to use in setting their own standards. Visit www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts to register for this webinar and to view the webcast presentation which will be posted in advance. Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.
