Waterbreak Webinar -Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Use of inventory methods for decision making


WaterBreaks web 


Event Sponsor:
Presentation Overview

Governments and regulatory requirements world-wide are moving towards greater accountability for greenhouse gas (GHG emissions), including on the municipal level where there has been a great deal of leadership in climate change issues. Municipalities are often the front line in dealing with climate change effects such as stormwater and flooding issues from increased storm events, as well as increased heat events that can affect vulnerable individuals within their populations. This Waterbreak will review GHG emission-related regulations for the water industry as well as tools for decision making (such as GHG emission inventories) and typical sources of GHG emissions related to construction and operation of water and wastewater treatment plants.
