The EPA’s Climate Change and Water: Resources and Tools page provides information and links to various resources, data sources, and tools to facilitate climate-informed water management. Information is categorized into the following groups: infrastructure, watersheds and wetlands, coastal and ocean waters, water quality, tribal, climate change and water science and research, data and tools, and for kids and educators. Users can also link to other EPA sites where resources can be queried according to geographic region and/or more can be learned about federal collaborations dealing with climate change and water. Resources contained within the site represent and could be used for a diversity of adaptation phases and by a variety of audiences.
