Operationalizing Resilience in the Water Sector

The National Association of Clean Water Agencies and AMWA are cohosting a series of four complementary webinars on water system resilience. “Dealing with Disruption: Operationalizing Resilience in the Water Sector” will explore the role of water utilities in overall community resilience. Case studies, lessons learned, and resources for utilities will be shared so utilities can learn from one another and improve their resilience to multiple challenges, including natural disasters, cyber threats, climate conditions, and aging infrastructure.
