Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) Climate Scenarios Projection Map

Water utilities can use this map to understand how climate change may affect their ability to maintain and deliver adequate, reliable, and sustainable water supplies and clean water services.

This map provides easy-to-access scenario-based climate change projections drawn from CREAT. The impacts from a changing climate, including extreme heat and more intense storms, present challenges to water, wastewater, and storm water utilities and the communities they serve. Understanding how climate change may affect a utility's ability to maintain and deliver adequate, reliable, and sustainable water supplies and clean water services is the first step in climate-related planning. 

All climate models project warming, although the extent of warming and the direction of changes in precipitation both vary. Scenario data in the tool can support your assessments and subsequent decisions across a range of temperature increases and precipitation changes.
