This workshop is being offered to assist with adaption and long term infrastructure planning related to utility resilience planning.

Provides training on the Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative and its CREAT

The CRWU initiative provides drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities with the practical tools, training, and technical assistance needed to increase resilience to extreme weather events. Through a comprehensive planning process, CRWU assists by promoting a clear understanding of potential long-term adaptation options for decision-making related to water sector utility infrastructure financing.

CREAT is a risk assessment application that helps utilities in adapting to extreme weather events through a better understanding of current and future weather conditions.
