What Does Water Resources Resiliency Mean? An AWRA Panel Discussion [PODCAST]

Recently, I was fortunate enough to moderate a panel discussion at the opening plenary session of the American Water Resources Association’s 2016 Annual Conference, which took place in Orlando, Florida. The panelists were fantastic: Lester Sola and Hardeep Anand, the Director and Deputy Director, respectively, of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department, Cindy Wallis-Lage, the President of Black & Veatch’s Water Business, and Shawn Grindstaff, Senior Resolution Counsel at the US EPA. This week’s podcast is the Q&A session from that conference – a big thanks to the AWRA and to each panelist for allowing the session to be recorded and released as a podcast. Give a listen for terrific insights on a wide range of water resources resiliency issues from these tremendous panelists.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • What water resources resiliency means
  • How utilities think about water resources resiliency
  • Whether customers understand the need to invest in water infrastructure
  • Is there the political will necessary for water infrastructure investment
  • How the water infrastructure investment will be funded
  • Why communicating the benefits of water infrastructure investment is more challenging than with other types of infrastructure investments
  • US EPA’s CREAT (Climate Readiness Evaluation Awareness Tool) program
  • How chronic stress and individual shocks fit within the water resources resiliency framework
