Enhancing Climate Resilience in the Water Sector
July 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This is a one-hour webinar to assist drinking water and wastewater utilities with “Enhancing Climate Resilience in the Water Sector.” Participants will learn about the Climate-Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative developed by EPA to increase resilience to extreme weather events. The webinar will also feature the Water Research Foundation’s (WRF) efforts to help utility managers understand and assess climate-related risks and opportunities and incorporate them into strategic planning.
This webinar will:
- Share information about the EPA’s free risk and resilience resources for water utilities, including resources to plan for extreme weather and tools to assess risks of extreme weather;
- Discuss how EPA’s tools can be applied to water utilities of all sizes; and
- Hear from water sector experts implementing programs to enhance resilience to extreme weather events.
