The CTP and partners held a workshop for wastewater treatment facility operators as well as those who own and operate satellite wastewater collection systems on the short- and long-term science and impacts of changing weather patterns and sea level rise due to climate change.
Topics covered at the workshop included observed and future impacts of increased rainfall and flooding as well as other climate change impacts to RI and supporting science and EPA tools and resources such as the Climate Ready Water Utilities Program. There was also a facilitated discussion about how participants think that various effects of climate change might impact their wastewater infrastructure and what resources they would need to take on climate change adaptation planning.
Presenters included experts from the RI Energy Office, the National Weather Service's Northeast River Forecast Center, and EPA Region 1. The workshop was co-sponsored by RI DEM and the Narragansett Water Pollution Control Association.
