WE&T Magazine Highlights SARP-funded Extreme Events Workshops
An article in Water Environment and Technology (WE&T) Magazine's February 2013 issue highlighted a collaborative project involving NOAA's Sectoral Applications Research Program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and water and applied research organizations including the Water Environment Research Foundation, the Water Research Foundation, Concurrent Technologies Corporation and Noblis


The collaborative research project examines how water utilities, resource managers, and county and regional planners make decisions before and during extreme weather, and how they have adapted and expect in the future to adapt planning efforts to better prepare. This effort began in August 2010 with a 2-day workshop and will culminate this year after a series of workshops across the country.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
