Join us Thursday for our second deep-dive into wastewater surveillance featuring California and national experts. Hear from distinguished Stanford environmental researcher Dr. Alexandria Boehm.

Dr. Boehm will provide an update on research, the objectives, and progress to date for SARS-CoV-2 wastewater based epidemiology. Dr. Boehm is a professor in the civil and environmental engineering department at Stanford. She studies sources, fate, and transport of waterborne pathogens, as well as their health effects. Goals of the research are to develop new technologies for reducing concentrations of pathogens and new policies for reducing incidence of waterborne illness.

Thank you to our webinar sponsor GT MOLECULAR.

The CASA-CWEA COVID-19 update webinars are free for water and wastewater professionals. The webinars are expertly guided by Greg Kester from CASA, our moderator once again for this webinar series. Hurry register soon and join this exciting conversation about wastewater surveillance.

Last call for our 'SYP Geography and Climate" webinar featuring Dr. Roger Bales! Come join us on August 25th at 12:00p.m. in this students and young professional led webinar. During this webinar, we will examine the temperature and precipitation patterns that define the state's climate as well as explore how the steep gradients in the Sierra Nevada shape our water resources. We will also assess how past droughts inform future water-security challenges and project how important source-water areas will respond as climate continues to warm. Lastly, we will consider how the state's water balance is changing.

Introducing our Fuel Tank Management & Monitoring Program webinar presented by CWEA-SARBS!

There are countless of fuel tanks that are used for day-to-day operations and fuel powered generators to support buildings. Having access to fuel tank inventory, especially in an emergency situation, is not just common sense, it is a requirement of the California Energy Emergency Response Plan and Federal Energy Commission Emergency Planning Program. Let TankVisions create or be a valuable contribution to your Emergency Storage Tank Administration Program.

Breaking #wastewater news: CDC ramping-up Federal efforts to help local public health agencies and wastewater agencies test sewage for #COVID19.

"Sewage testing has been used to find other diseases, such as polio, and to determine the prevalence of opioid use in some U.S. communities. Some public health experts, including Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, have suggested utilizing sewage testing for Covid-19, saying it’s a cost-effective strategy to track the coronavirus and predict outbreaks." - CNBC article

Rolling Power Outage Triggers Oakland Estuary Sewage Spill: 50,000 Gallons Discharged Into Waterway

Sounds like an epic team effort by EBMUD Friday night into early Saturday morning after unannounced PG&E power outage strikes WWTP in Oakland.
"EBMUD employees worked through the night to restore pumping capacity... however flows exceeded storage capacity ... from 3:47 a.m to 3:58 a.m." https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2020/08/15/rolling-power-outage-triggers-oakland-estuary-sewage-spill/

Boaters were being warned Saturday to stay away from the Oakland Estuary after an estimated 50,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled during a power outage Friday night at the East Bay Municipal Utility District wastewater treatment plant in West Oakland.

SOMETHING IN OUR WATER We live in Merced, California, and water I have bottled to use out in our cabana/coffee house over a short period of time has developed a substance resembling toilet paper in the water. These are sealed containers, and the water source is our tap water that has been filtered through a countertop 10-stage filtration system whose filter is always replaced on a regular basis. I have tried to contact the UC Merced chem labs, and the Merced Sun Star newspaper about the problem, but the local newspaper is always unreachable except for their delivery service complaint department that is answered by somebody in a foreign country. Their news room is never available even though they are the main artery here in Central California for liberal, anti Trump news that consists mainly of out of state columns and articles that are clearly anti-Trump, anti-Republican in nature.
Hello everyone, I appreciate the work you do to save our environment! I would like to tell you all about the website Film Festival Flix, it is an awesome new site that houses films from film festivals. I would like to recommend a documentary film More Than Honey. It is a revealing documentary, and it tells us about the troubles honey bees are facing. I saw this film on the festival flix website, and they have a great selection of films to choose from. I recommend going to their site, and looking at all the films they have to offer.
JUST SAW THIS- COMMON SENSE- "Public Advised to NOT Flush Disinfecting Wipes, Paper Towels Down Toilet – Throw Them Away Instead" BUT THE WATER TREATMENT PLANTS SHOULD GO AFTER THE COMPANIES THAT ARE ADVERTISING FLUSHABLE WIPES SINCE IT IS FALSE ADVERTING.
