Upcoming SARP/COCA virtual seminar at North Carolina Water Resources Research Institute Annual Conference

This week, lead COCA/SARP Principal Investigator Jane Harrison (North Carolina State University) will moderate one of the first virtual sessions of the annual North Carolina Water Resources Research Institute Conference. This session, Wastewater Treatment Along North Carolina’s Changing Coastlines, will focus on the impacts of coastal hazards (e.g. extreme precipitation, high-tide flooding) and sea level rise on wastewater treatment infrastructure along the coast. Panelists, which include members of the COCA/SARP project team, will explore the economic, health and ecosystem impacts from damaged systems and discuss possible solutions. The seminar highlights the collaborative nature of COCA/SARP research projects, their emphasis on bringing together scientists with state and local-level decision makers, and the use of climate information to support community resilience.

The North Carolina Water Resources Research Institute is a collaboration between The University of North Carolina, USGS, and The National Institute for Water Resources. This 50-year long collaboration supports water resources related research, training, and education relevant to the state of North Carolina.
