WEF Collaborates with NOAA To Improve Utility Access to Climate Information

March 14, 2014

WEF Resources & Efforts

On Feb. 10, the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) participated in a day-long workshop that focused on increasing partnerships with water utilities, urban planning professionals, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA; Washington, D.C.) communities. The workshop, led by NOAA’s Climate Program Office, examined current successful federally hosted websites and opportunities to leverage one or more of these sites to improve utilities’ access to data and ability to use this data.

WEF is collaborating with NOAA and other organizations to assist with this effort, which would help utilities make long-term planning, asset investment, capital improvement, and climate adaption decisions. WEF also is working with NOAA’s Sectoral Applications Research Program, the U.S. National Integrated Drought Information System, the Water Environment Research Foundation (Alexandria, Va.), the Water Research Foundation (Denver), and the American Water Works Association (Denver) in hosting and promoting webinars as part of a series called “Climate Information for Managing Risks In Water Resources.”
