Learning from Megadisasters - Earthquake Resilience

Monday, December 13, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Registration Fee: $75 member/$120 non-member. This webinar is included in our full year subscription package.

It's been 10 years since the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami which led to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. What have we learned? Have we become more resilient? In this webinar, we will share the lessons learned and how we can use better technology to minimize the impact of a large earthquake. We will learn about the changes that took place in Japan and other countries, what technology is available today to make your water system more resilient, and what leading utilities are doing to prepare for the big one. We can't stop nature, but we can do our best to minimize the environmental, economic, and social impacts caused by a large earthquake.

Larning Objectives:

  • What have we learned from the Tohoku earthquake experience?
  • What technology is available to make our water distribution system more resilient to earthquake?
  • As a utility, what can we do to better prepare for the big one?
