WEBINAR: CASA-CWEA Wipes Webinar 1: Legislative and Public Outreach Efforts

June 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 12:45 pm

After 10 years of struggling with wipes, are California’s wastewater professionals getting closer to some relief?

Join two important wipes webinars facilitated by Diana Messina with the State Water Board. Learn how agencies and associations are resolving the crisis and steps you can take to slow the unending waves of wipes hitting your system.

In our first webinar, CASA’s Jessica Gauger and Jared Voskhul will talk about the history of wipes and why so many are ending up in wastewater. They’ll also discuss CASA’s evolving legislative strategies and an update on negotiations with manufacturers.

Jared will share recent national studies about the impacts of wipes on agencies. Learn how you can help build an even stronger case for regulations by contributing to CASA’s research efforts.

In the second half, two communications professionals, Emily Barnett with Central San and Roni Gehlke, representing Ironhouse Sanitary District, will talk about successful wipes outreach tactics you can use. Central San has developed multiple successful and award-winning outreach campaigns related to wipes. There are creative ways to obtain outreach materials and the cost of running advertising in your region might be less than you expect.

After attending the first wipes webinar you’ll learn the history of the crisis in California, the latest legislative efforts and outreach tactics you can use.

Bring your wipes questions. Diana will lead a Q&A with our panel of experts to get your wipes questions answered. We’ll also have a call to action – things California wastewater professionals can do to help resolve the wipes crisis faster.

Don’t miss the second CASA-CWEA webinar on June 25th focused on agency success stories and again led by Diana. Learn about outreach, operations and technology tactics agencies are using to prevent wipes and trash from clogging pump stations.
