Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) A Resource from the Environmental Protection Agency

The Climate Resilience Committee aims to support utilities and municipalities by sharing resources. The goal is for utilities to plan for climate change impacts and implement solutions that allow for continued operation during extreme weather events and reliability far into the future. Municipal and county governments employ various solutions to build resilience before, during, and after flood events to protect infrastructure, public health, and livelihoods.

In 2024, the committee is committed to sharing resources and curating information to help utilities and municipal and county decision-makers with their climate resilience work. Check out this resource available by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU)

EPA’s CRWU initiative provides drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater (water sector) utilities with practical tools, training, and technical assistance to increase system resilience to climate change impacts. CRWU helps promote a clear understanding of climate data and helps water sector utilities identify potential adaptation strategies, implementation options, and infrastructure financing.
