The Climate Change Resource Community is intended to keep the water industry informed about current resources, tools, issues and developments related to climate change. 

If you have any questions or updates to share, please submit them to AWWA.


EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative has launched two new tools to promote a clear understanding of climate science and adaptation options by translating complex climate projections into understandable, actionable, localized information for the water sector, including drinking water, wastewater and stormwater utilities.

The Information Exchange gives water sector utilities an interactive platform to explore real-world utility climate adaptation case studies, and encourages utilities to connect with one another for information on how their communities can pursue similar adaptation strategies. The web-based Workshop Planner assists water sector stakeholders with conducting climate change adaptation workshops, helping utilities and communities explore and better understand how more intense and frequent extreme weather events can affect water resources. Learn more and access the tools from the CRWU homepage.
