Case Study Series: Water Resource Strategies and Information Needs in Response to Extreme Weather/Climate Events
A case study series based on workshops in six communities that have experienced extreme events: floods, storms and derechos, sea level rise and storm surge, drought, and unseasonable frost.
The case studies highlight:
- For utility managers: lessons learned on building resilience, including useful tools and data sources.
- For policy makers and the research community: how water utilities plan, including information needs.
- For communities: opportunities for dialogue.
