A group of RCAP staff had a brief "meet-and-greet" meeting with Peter Silva, the Assistant Administrator for Water at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, on Dec. 4 at Silva’s office in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the meeting was to speak about RCAP’s programs, introduce themselves, and to meet the relatively new head of one of the offices that RCAP relates to in its EPA-funded programs. During the conversation about RCAP’s work, one topic that was discussed was decentralized waste water systems.
