Description: Wastewater systems across the country are increasingly at risk from the impacts of extreme weather events, aging infrastructure, lack of funding, and an unstable regulatory environment. The growing risk of failure in wastewater systems presents a critical threat to public health. Small wastewater systems are more likely to lack the funding, staff, and resources to adapt to these changes creating an added challenge to providing effective wastewater management. This presentation takes a look at how small wastewater systems can prepare for the effects of climate change such as higher intensity storms, sea level rise, more extreme temperatures, and reduced flows from water conservation efforts.

Trainer: Stephanie Dalke, Program Manager for Water Resources and Climate Adaptation, University of Maryland Environmental Finance Center
