Private Property Virtual Library Sharing Information Across Our Borders
Abstract:A project team from the Water Environment Federation's (WEF) Collection Systems Committee (CSC) developed the Private Property Virtual Library (PPVL) to be a resource of private property program-related resource materials available through the internet.
Following the development of the PPVL and its launch in May 2007, a second project phase was undertaken to update/expand the library and to provide public outreach opportunities by conducting a webcast, conference presentations and a WEFTEC workshop. Since private property continues to be at the forefront of issues that public utilities are facing, the development and maintenance of the PPVL will be an on-going effort for the CSC.
This paper includes a summary of the PPVL collection built to date, including participating utilities and an overview of the type of private property programs that these utilities have established, and an outline of the CSC project team's plan for sustaining these efforts in the future.
