The Washington County Water Conservancy District, Utah Division of Emergency Management, Utah Department of Environmental Quality, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Intermountain Section AWWA and the Southern Utah Branches of the American Public Works Association and American Society of Civil Engineers are hosting a free hands-on training session for drinking water and wastewater utilities on the Creating Resilient Water Utilities (CRWU) initiative and CREAT.

 

The CRWU initiative provides drinking water, wastewater and stormwater utilities with the practical tools, training and technical assistance needed to increase resilience to extreme weather events. Through a comprehensive planning process, CRWU assists in identifying potential long-term adaptation options for decision-making related to water sector utility infrastructure financing.

 

CREAT is a risk assessment application that helps utilities in adapting to extreme weather events by increasing awareness of current and future environmental conditions. The one-day training will give participants hands-on training with CREAT, which can help participants examine and identify potential adaptation options to increase their resilience. The training will take place on Thursday, March 28, 2019, in St. George, UT.
