FLOOD RESILIENCE: Webinar for Water and Wastewater Utilities in Iowa and Michigan
Tuesday, July 28, 2020
9:45AM – 12:00PM CDT
To encourage communities to build greater resilience, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the Iowa Rural Water Association, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, the Michigan Rural Water Association, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are hosting Flood Resilience: Webinar for Water and Wastewater Utilities. This webinar is designed for the water sector in Iowa and Michigan and will provide guidance and information for drinking water and wastewater utilities to enhance their ability to withstand a flooding event, minimize damage, and rapidly recover from disruptions to service.
• Learn how to use the U.S. EPA tool Flood Resilience: A Basic Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities (Flood Resilience Guide)
• Walk through an example flood assessment using the Guide that also enables you to repeat the assessment at your facility
• Learn how to identify mitigation measures to effectively protect your utility from flooding
• Hear from utilities that have implemented flood mitigation measures
This webinar will cover the 4-Step process of the Flood Resilience Guide as well as provide real-world examples of recent flood impacts and flood mitigation efforts. A scenario used during the training examines the impact of flooding on a hypothetical utility and provides participants an opportunity to walk through an example flood assessment.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Drinking water, wastewater and storm water utility staff and management involved with planning, operations, and risk management; water sector associations; technical assistance providers; and consultants.
