EPA’s Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative provides drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater (water sector) utilities with practical tools, training, and technical assistance needed to increase resilience to climate change. CRWU helps utilities and stakeholders by promoting a clear understanding of climate change and helps to identify potential long-term adaptation options for decision-making related to implementation and infrastructure financing.
This is an 8-minute guide to the EPA’s CRWU initiative.
- EPA’s Resilient Strategies Guide: Utilities and other stakeholders in the early stages of understanding potential climate risks can start with this guide.
- EPA’s Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) is a more advanced next step to assess risk to utility assets and operations.
