Mattawan, MI 49071


To encourage communities to build greater resilience, MRWA and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are hosting Flood Resilience: Training for Water and Wastewater Utilities. This one-day training 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.
 

PENDING: CECs 0.6 water and wastewater

TRAINING OBJECTIVES
• Learn how to use the U.S. EPA tool “Flood Resilience: A Basic Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities” 
• Complete 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
• Learn about funding options for implementation of mitigation measures 
• Network and learn from each other

TRAINING FORMAT
This training will include working sessions on each of the four primary sections of the Flood Resilience Guide, provide real-world examples of recent flood impacts and flood mitigation efforts, and provide information about funding options for mitigation projects that utilities may want to implement. A scenario used during the training examines the impact of flooding on a hypothetical utility and provides participants an opportunity to conduct an example flood assessment.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Drinking water, wastewater and stormwater utility staff and management involved with planning, operations, and risk management; water sector associations; technical assistance providers; and consultants.
