Speaker: Paul Collins, Manager, CDPH, Division of Drinking Water and Environmental Management

Educational objectives and description of class

The course will survey the changing modalities of information transfer that affect the movement of data among Local Primacy Agencies (LPA’s), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the federal Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA). Rationale for the changes will be reviewed and placed in context of evolving information priorities including water conservation planning, water costs, and infrastructure needs.   A survey of present technology will set the stage for discussion of how the technology for information transfer is expected to change and how that will impact the different entities involved.

Anticipated educational outcomes for each class

Participants in the course should obtain a thorough understanding of the current and proposed future infrastructure with emphasis on their individual roles and responsibilities in the process. This understanding will allow for planning to occur that will allow the affected entities to adapt their systems and processes to meet the changing information needs and substantially increase compliance rates in their information environment.
