Climate & Weather Information for New England Water Utilities

NOAA and its partners at the Northeast Regional Climate Center are hosting a virtual workshop for small- to medium-sized water utilities and stormwater managers serving 100,000 or less. The focus of the workshop is on “Climate & Weather Information for Water Utilities”.

We are already seeing the impacts of climate change in New England including extreme precipitation and flooding that will continue to create challenges for water utilities. This series of 4 virtual sessions is intended to assist the utilities in understanding precipitation extremes in a changing climate, and to access tools that will help build resilience to these extremes. The workshops will be presented in the context of EPA requirements, will review climate trends in New England, and showcase tools that aid in meeting water utility requirements, asset management, and planning and preparedness for climate change. We will also hear from cities and utilities who have been moving towards greater resilience to precipitation extremes so we can learn from their experiences.

Dates and times TBD.
