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

In Case You Missed It!

Dear Maryland Water Sector Stakeholder:

The Maryland Department of Planning’s Resource Conservation division is pleased to share the following information as part of our Water Resources Element training and support.

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.

The EPA’s webinar training series, titled “Building Resilience and Adapting to Climate Change Impacts for Drinking Water and Wastewater Utilities,” begins with an Introductory webinar on June 22 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 next four webinars are on July 19, 21, and 26 and August 2 focusing 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.

Links to the EPA’s Case Study and Information Exchange Map, CRWU Training Center, and the CREAT tool can be found at the CRWU website. EPA’s CRWU Webinar Series Mid-Atlantic Region Flyer is linked here. Anyone needing more information on this training series may contact Wesley Wiggins at Wiggins.Wesley@epa.gov.
