Creating Resilient Water Utilities

Drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utility professionals can access the resources on this website to find tools, training, and technical assistance to help them increase resilience to extreme weather events.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Creating Resilient Water Utilities Initiative provides water sector utilities with the practical tools, training, and technical assistance needed to adapt to climate change by promoting a clear understanding of potential long-term adaptation options. The program website includes resources to help water utilities plan for extreme weather, assess vulnerability, get training, and access other resources.

Specific tools and resources include:

  • Adaptation Strategies Guide for Water Utilities
  • Workshop planning tool
  • Adaptation Case Study and Information Exchange tool
  • Climate Resilience Evaluation & Awareness Tool (CREAT), which includes local climate change projections
  • Coastal storm surge projection scenarios
  • Information on workshops and webinars
