Climate-ready Water Utilities Group to Meet

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently convened a Climate Ready Water Utilities Working Group under the National Drinking Water Advisory Council.

The working group's charge includes

  • developing criteria for climate ready water utilities;
  • conducting a gap analysis on climate change-related tools, training and products to address utilities' short- and long-term needs; and
  • identifying mechanisms that would facilitate the adoption of climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies by the water sector.

The working group will have its first of five in-person meetings on Dec. 3-4, in Washington, D.C.
