Learn From Others: Explore Drought Resilience Case Studies
EPA's Drought GeoPlatform Case Studies Maptells the story of how nine diverse small- to medium-sized water utilities were challenged by drought impacts, and how they were able to successfully respond to and recover from drought. The interactive GeoPlatform site also features three additional videos describing how utilities addressed specific drought challenges, including:
EPA's Incident Action Checklists are a great way to stay prepared for all hazards. The concise checklists provide key actions to take before, during, and after an incident or natural disaster. The available checklists cover cybersecurity, drought, earthquakes, extreme cold and winter storms, extreme heat, flooding, harmful algal blooms, hurricanes, pandemic, power outages, tornadoes, tsunami, volcanic activity, and wildfires.
The Water Laboratory Alliance is hosting an Analytical Preparedness Full-Scale Exercise (AP-FSE) webinar. Attendees will learn how participating in an AP-FSE can increase preparedness, how the toolkit and its resources can be leveraged to plan and conduct an exercise and how to coordinate analytical support and further develop relationships with response partners.?
Building a Resilient Water Sector: Preparing for Supply Chain Disruptions
April 29, 2021 at 2-3 PM EDT
EPA is hosting a webinar that will discuss the interdependencies between the water and chemical sector and provide tools and resources to assist utility staff with developing more resilient supply chains. A representative from the Department of Homeland Security will discuss commodity concerns, specifically the use, availability, and distribution of carbon dioxide in the water sector. Finally, Des Moines Water Works will provide lessons learned from a potential carbon dioxide disruption as a result of a local ethanol plant closure in Iowa.
