EPA Releases Community-Based Water Resiliency Electronic Tool Update

EPA has just announced the release of version 1.1 of the Community-Based Water Resiliency (CBWR) Tool. This updated version of the CBWR Tool includes more than 400 tools and resources to enhance a community’s resiliency to water service disruptions.

A main component of the tool is the self assessment, which provides users with questions tailored to their stakeholder group and culminates in a self-assessment summary report. The report details the strengths and weaknesses of the user’s community resiliency and recommends tools and resources that can be used to enhance resiliency. Users can then navigate to the CBWR toolbox, where they can find more information about the recommended tools and resources.
