U.S. EPA’s CRWU initiative provides drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater (water sector) utilities with practical tools, training, and technical assistance needed to increase resilience to climate change. CRWU assists water sector utilities and stakeholders by promoting a clear understanding of climate change and helps to identify potential long-term adaptation options for decision-making related to implementation and infrastructure financing.
Risk assessment tools include:
- Resilience Strategies Guide: For those in the early stages of understanding potential climate change risks, typically smaller water sector utilities.
- Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool: For those that want to take a comprehensive approach to water sector utility climate change risk assessment.
