Description: When it comes to water resilience, success stories sometimes seem confined to bigger cities.  This session, from the 2022 Tap Into Resilience Summit, focuses on how water resilience strategies can be scaled down so they are achievable by small drinking water and wastewater systems. The panelists frame the unique resilience challenges facing small systems, highlighting communities that are advancing water resilience through green stormwater infrastructure and other approaches. Panelists also share how partnerships have led to success, ultimately zeroing in on how smaller systems can make progress toward their resilience goals. The presentations are followed by an audience Question and Answer period.
