    The COVID-19 pandemic brought a new set of challenges to our society. To help slow down the spread of COVID-19, businesses, schools, universities, and other facilities were shut down or are sparsely used. Due to building closures, the water in pipes becomes stagnant and water quality will degrade over time. Water stagnation could cause a variety of water quality issues such as increased risk for regrowth of pathogens, dissipating disinfectant, and increased corrosion of plumbing components in the building systems. While our understanding of water quality impacts due to widespread, long-term building closures is still developing, this webcast will provide current information and recommendations on what water utilities, public health officials, and building owners should consider when buildings reopen.

    Presenters: 

    •  Jennifer Clancy, PhD, MS Law, BCES, President and Executive Director, ESPRI
    • Andrew Whelton, PhD, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering and Environmental and Ecological Engineering, Purdue University
    • Michele Prevost, PhD, Professor and Principal Chairholder, NSERC Industrial Chair on Drinking Water; Civil, Geological and Mining Engineering, École Polytechnique de Montréal
    • Jasen Kunz, MPH, REHS, Environmental Health Officer, National Center for Environmental Health, CDC

    Moderator: Grace Jang, PhD, Research Program Manager, The Water Research Foundation

    Water Education Colorado's Water Fluency Program offers immersion in the language of water as well as tools for navigating the culture, complexity and future of water management and policy issues. 

    This program is for anyone interested in learning more about water. Typical participants are involved with making decisions about water, but may feel they lack basic background on water management and the regulatory environment to confidently make those decisions.

    Participants will learn about water through four in-person classroom discussion days, water-focused site visits, webinar-based trainings, online discussions, and inter-session reading assignments and applications of learning. Course curriculum covers topics of statewide relevance:
    - Colorado’s water resources
    - Legal and institutional frameworks
    - Water resource management
    - Colorado water for the future

    This year we're bringing the program to the southwest for the first time, with sessions in: Durango, June 23 and 24
    Cortez, September 2 and 3
