NO COST RESILIENCE PLANNING AND ADAPTATION TRAINING FOR DRINKING WATER AND WASTEWATER UTILITIES
The Maine Water Utility Association (MWUA), Maine Water Environment Association (MeWEA), Joint Environmental Training Coordinating Committee (JETCC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are hosting two free hands-on training sessions for drinking water and wastewater utilities on the Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative and CREAT.
The CRWU initiative provides drinking water, wastewater and stormwater utilities with the practical tools, training and technical assistance needed to increase resilience to extreme weather events. Through a comprehensive planning process, CRWU assists in identifying potential long-term adaptation options for decision-making related to water sector utility infrastructure financing.
CREAT is a risk assessment application that helps utilities in adapting to extreme weather events by increasing awareness of current and future environmental conditions. The one-day training will give participants hands-on training with CREAT, which can help participants examine and identify potential adaptation options to increase their resilience. The trainings will take place on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, in Brewer, ME, and on Thursday, May 24, in Gardiner, ME.
