What’s Up with Climate Ready Water Utilities (CRWU)?

EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative identifies its mission as follows:  “to provide resources for drinking water, wastewater, and storm water utilities to adapt to climate change by promoting a clear understanding of climate science and adaptation options.”

Over the past couple of years, the CRWU effort has created and shared a wealth of information and resources for both states and utilities.  These range from updates to the CRWU tool itself to webinars and workshops, a new Extreme Weather Workshop Planner, a searchable web-based toolkit, and other guides and tools.  The CRWU Progress Report that follows this message provides more details about these efforts and includes links for the various trainings, webinars and tools.  Take a look…there’s lots of good information and opportunities.
