Minnesota Water Utilities Resilience Planning & Adaptation Training – July 18, 2019 – St. Could, Minnesota – register here
- The Minnesota Rural Water Association, the Minnesota Department of Health, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are hosting a free training for drinking-water, storm-water, and waste-water utilities on resilience planning and adapting to current and future extreme weather threats. This workshop will share information about how environmental conditions and extreme weather events like drought and flooding could impact drinking-water, storm-water, and waste-water utilites in Minnesota. It will also investigate adaptation strategies for building utility long-term resilience and will make a business case to invest in resilience. And, the workshop will provide an opportunity to share stories of successful resilience planning efforts and adaptation activities. Attendees will be introduced to the EPA's Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) resources and tools as well as resources available for financing resilience and adaptation. Topics are timely for drinking-water, storm-water, and waste-water utility staff and management involved in planning, operations, sustainability, and risk management; technical assistance providers; local, state, federal, and tribal government officials; watershed planners; and water-sector associations. Attendees are eligible for 6.0 contact hours for certified water operators and certified waste-water operators. For more information, view the event flyer or contact Alfredo Lagos.
