EPA Climate Adaptation Strategies Guide Now Available

EPA has just released its new Adaptation Strategies Guide as part of the Climate Ready Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative. The guide was developed to assist drinking water and wastewater utilities in gaining a better understanding of what climate change-related impacts they may face in their region and what adaptation strategies can be used to prepare their system for those impacts. The Guide contains easy-to-understand climate science and information, utility adaptation case studies, as well as an adaptation planning worksheet.

The information provided in the Guide will help jump start the adaptation planning process at drinking water and wastewater utilities that may not have started to consider climate change impacts or adaptation. It can also be used by any group or organization that is
interested in learning about water sector climate challenges.
