EBC Water Resources - Challenges Facing our Water Resources Under a Changing Climate
Event Description

This EBC Water Resources program will explore how our drinking water and coastal water resources are being affected by climate change and some of the adaptation and resiliency measures local states and municipalities are doing to combat these challenges.  We will also discuss the challenges associated with managing stormwater and wastewater under a changing climate and the unique measures being undertaken by local utilities to protect our current civil infrastructure and future planned investments.

This program will touch on the following topics:

  • Drinking Water Resources – drought and extreme event impacts on drinking water resources, the challenges of ensuring communities have adequate access to drinking water
  • Coastal Water Resources – rising tides and storm surge and the issues with losing our critical green infrastructure (e.g., marshes, beaches) and the protection it provides to inland communities
  • Wastewater – how to protect critical wastewater infrastructure from coastal and riverine flooding
  • Stormwater – how to get the water out (and keep our feet dry) under increasingly challenging storm event conditions and rising tides
