AMWA and NACWA, with their partners The Water Research Foundation and WaterISAC, will host the 2021 Water Utility Resilience Forum from December 13 to 15 in Miami, Florida. Subject matter experts and water sector thought-leaders will provide utility executives with strategies to adapt to today’s resilience challenges and prepare for those issues of the future. The forum will offer a variety of panel discussions, breakout sessions, and roundtables to optimize interaction.

Session spotlight: Resilience up close

In this panel discussion, utility leaders will share lessons learned on recent and abrupt tests of their utilities’ resilience. Tacoma Water Superintendent Scott Dewhirst will discuss how his utility handled the chlorine supply chain shortages earlier this year and will provide the utility’s plan if the issues had extended. Utilities Director for the City of Round Rock, Texas, Michael Thane will explain how his utility’s resilience investments supported the community’s response during Winter Storm Uri in February that included a weeklong power outage, fuel shortages, and frozen pumps.

More agenda offerings

Presenters will examine other topics, including workforce, cybersecurity, emergency planning, supply chain shortages, equity, community-based climate resilience, and more.


Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with peers during breaks, over lunch, or at receptions.
