Description:

Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) has opened a “Call for Utilities,” encouraging those interested in no-cost climate change risk assessment technical assistance.

Selected utilities will be notified in early September 2024. Scheduling of the technical assistance assessment will begin in late September or early October of 2024. EPA will assign selected utilities a start-date of either October 2024, or January, April or July 2025.

Through EPA’s CRWU initiative, drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater (water sector) utility owners and operators will receive one-on-one, no-cost climate change risk assessment support using CRWU’s tools and resources, including our Resilient Strategies Guide, Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool and Climate and Weather Data Maps.

Over the course of two to four months, water sector utilities will be guided through a risk assessment process to:

  • Better understand their potential risk to climate change threats;
  • Identify potential adaptive measures to become more resilient to those threats; and
  • Identify potential funding sources for implementation of those potential adaptive measures.
How to Apply:

Apply by August 15th, 2024, by emailing Aliza Furneaux ([email protected]).
