The webinar included an update on the current drought situation and outlook, an overview of wildland fire conditions, and featured perspectives from on-the-ground responders about the drought conditions in the West.
The three-part webinar series is designed to help water utilities professionals better plan for and mitigate drought impacts and advance long-term drought resilience.
Approximately $15 million will be available for about 90 new awards, pending budget appropriations, with most awards funded between $50,000 and $300,000 per year.
