Learn More About Extreme Weather and Coastal Resilience

If you are interested in learning more about mitigating the impacts of extreme weather or have a particular interest in finding ways to be more resilient in the face of strong storm surges or hurricane impacts, then EPA’s Water Security Division has two opportunities for you.  During June and July, a series of workshops and train the trainer events will be taking place in seven different states.  The workshops and training events are free of charge…but you must register in advance to participate.

Series One offers two-day train-the-trainer sessions that focus on how technical assistance providers can use two new EPA tools to help utilities understand and adapt to impacts from coastal storm events and related threats.  Four locations – Boca Raton, FL, Houston, TX, Mobile, AL, and West Babylon, NY – are where you can go to learn about using these tools.

Series Two looks at CREAT, the Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool.  Through hands on training, participants will learn more about enhancing resilience to extreme weather events and long term climate change impacts.  These trainings are scheduled to take place in Pueblo of Santa Ana, NM, Portland, OR, and Des Moines, IA.
