The 2019 Water Infrastructure and Improvement Act (WIIA) codified EPA’s Integrated Municipal Stormwater and Wastewater Planning Approach Framework  in the Clean Water Act. This webinar highlighted WIIA legislation, key elements of integrated planning and what it means for EPA, states and municipalities.

In addition to EPA staff,  the webinar featured the City of Richmond, Virginia’s (RVA) Department of Public Utilities experience developing their 2017 RVA Clean Water Integrated Plan and permit. For the state perspective, the Director of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s Bureau of Water discussed how they worked with a metropolitan wastewater utility through a collaborative integrated planning approach that addressed multiple wastewater issues, including POTW upgrades, asset management, wet weather management and nutrient reduction across multiple watersheds.
