Water Utility Climate Webinar Series Starts on September 18

EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative and the Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA) are starting a new webinar series beginning on Wednesday, September 18th, that will continue through the spring of 2014.  The webinars will explore planning and decision-making strategies to help drinking water, wastewater and stormwater utilities (i.e., the water sector) understand and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

These 45 to 60 minute webinars will assist the water sector in developing a better understanding of climate change, managing impacts and creating adaptation strategies.  Each webinar will include presentations from utility representatives that have used these planning methods to help make critical decisions. Throughout the series, information will also be provided on available tools and resources to facilitate the planning processes.  The webinar topics include Sustainability and Adaptation, Scenario Planning, Robust Planning and Threshold Analysis. More topics may be added to the calendar throughout the year.

To register, view the “Training Calendar” tab at www.epa.gov/climatereadyutilities.  Participant space is limited, so we suggest that you register early.  You’ll receive an email confirmation when your registration is approved. For more topic descriptions and registration information, please see the attached flyer, which we encourage you to share with other contacts.  Please contact EPA at CRWUhelp@epa.gov if you have any questions or require additional information regarding CRWU initiative tools, resources, or webinars.
