 Attendees to this webinar will have the opportunity to hear from local and regional officials from across the country how various communities are adapting to the affects of climate change on their water resources. Case studies from California and Milwaukee, as well as an initiative from the Great Lakes will offer attendees insight into how communities are implementing adaptation plans and practices to address the impacts of drought, increased intensity and frequency of precipitation and storms, persistent flooding, and threats of water contamination. Attendees will learn how activities like collaborative planning, innovative community initiatives and integrative approaches can contribute to success in implementing actionable steps to maintain clean, reliable and sustainable water resources in the unpredictable and adverse circumstances created by a changing climate.
