WASHINGTON, DC, Sept. 15, 2009 -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water, in collaboration with its partners in the Water Sector, is sponsoring a Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA) Security Summit. The WLA Program provides the water sector with an integrated nationwide network of laboratories that have analytical capabilities and capacity to support a response to water contamination events involving chemical, biological, or radiochemical contaminants.
The WLA Security Summit will actively engage a vast array of technical and leadership staffs from the water, laboratory, and emergency response communities to learn about WLA Program elements, practice the WLA Response Plan (WLA-RP) for incident response, and provide hands-on experience with EPA security-related tools and resources.
The Summit will take place October 22-23, 2009, at the Crowne Plaza City Center in Philadelphia, PA. Registration for the Summit is now open and can be accessed on-line https://www.thetestportal.com/wlasummit
