EPA Climate Resilience Training Workshop for Drinking Water and Wastewater Utilities for the Mid-Atlantic

There are plenty of virtual seats available for this series of workshops which focus on how water utilities in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. (DE, MD, PA, VA, NJ, NY, CT) can adapt to climate change.   The virtual training sessions are free, 2-hour webinars. Below is information on this five-part webinar series.  Here is an informational flyer that provides more details on the training series. Even if you missed the Introductory Workshop in June, don’t worry, you will still learn much by attending any or all of the remaining workshops.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative is providing a series of five, free webinars for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater (water sector) utility owners and operators, as well as other water sector stakeholders in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. This webinar training series titled “Building Resilience and Adapting to Climate Change Impacts for Drinking Water and Wastewater Utilities” begins with an Introductory webinar concentrating on the impacts of climate change in the Mid-Atlantic, the identification of adaptation options, and a utility climate change risk assessment case study. The following four webinars focus on conducting a climate change risk assessment using EPA’s Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT), developing resilience and adaptation projects, and identifying financing programs to pay for infrastructure projects.

CREAT is a web-based risk assessment application for water sector utilities to assess and address current and potential future climate change impacts. This free training will help utilities incorporate climate change considerations into their decision-making, identify adaptation projects to build long-term resilience, and learn about federal and local resources for financing utility resilience projects. To learn more about CREAT success stories visit our Case Study and Information Exchange Map and to view other trainings visit the CRWU Training Center.
