Changes in climate and extreme weather events have and will continue to have a profound effect on our existing and future water infrastructure. Some events have led to major problems with the management of water and wastewater systems in New England. This EBC Water Resources Program has assembled a panel of industry experts to discuss trends, the planning that has and needs to occur to protect our water infrastructure investments, and some of the solutions that have been implemented to date.
