“Climate Change Adaptation Tools for Addressing Water Issues”

by John Whitler, Environmental Protection Specialist, U.S. EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water, Rebecca West, Deputy General Manager of Engineering and Technical Services, Spartanburg Water, South Carolina, and Lisa Beever, Director, Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program, Florida

Join us for a webcast on “Climate Change Adaptation Tools for Addressing Water Issues.” The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed several programs to help communities adapt to climate change including EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utilities (CRWU) program which provides resources for the water sector to develop and implement long-range plans that account for climate change impacts, and EPA’s Climate Ready Estuaries (CRE) program which works within the National Estuaries Program (NEP) to assess climate change vulnerabilities, engage stakeholders, implement adaptation strategies, and share lessons learned with other coastal managers. Tune into this webcast to learn more about these adaptation programs with case studies from Spartanburg, South Carolina water utilities on addressing climate change impacts including efforts to conduct a vulnerability assessment and stakeholder involvement, and from the Charlotte Harbor NEP which is developing climate change vulnerability assessments, adaptation plans, and indicators under the CRE program.

Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance. Participants are encouraged to download presentations prior to the webcast at Watershed Academy Webcast Seminars.
