In collaboration with the Water Utility Climate Alliance, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Ready Water Utilities initiative will host a webinar series beginning this fall. The webinars will explore planning and decision-making strategies to help drinking water, wastewater and stormwater utilities 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. The series begins on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, and will continue through the spring of 2014. Participant space is limited, and early registration is suggested. Participants will receive an email confirmation when their registration is approved. For more information and to register, view the “Training Calendar” tab at: www.epa.gov/climatereadyutilities.
