Abstract

This study discusses how water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities – and other local water resource managers – make decisions in response to recent extreme weather events. The study examines what happened, how information was used to inform decisions, what institutional dynamics helped or hindered, and how water utilities and their communities plan to manage impacts and build resiliency for future extreme events. The research was jointly sponsored by WERF, Water Research Foundation, EPA, NOAA, Concurrent Technologies Corporation, and Noblis. 114 pages. Online PDF. (2014)
