Meridian Institute

U.S. EPA Water Utility Sector Resilience Planning Workshops

Related: Sustainability and Resilience

​Meridian Institute provided general facilitation support to plan and deliver a series of four resilience planning workshops in 2017 for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utility managers. The workshops were designed for participants to learn about how extreme weather events could impact water utilities in different regions and to explore adaptation and resilience-building strategies that can reduce long-term risk to water infrastructure and resources from extreme events. Participants also identified key questions about water infrastructure vulnerabilities to address within their respective utilities or communities and learned about strategies for making the business case for investing in resilience. The workshops were held in Seattle, Washington; Lenexa, Kansas; Dallas, Texas; and Charleston, South Carolina. Meridian worked in collaboration with The Cadmus Group, and the workshop series was sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Creating Resilient Utilities Initiative.
