FLOOD
RESILIENCE:
Training for Water and Wastewater Utilities

Flood Resilience Training Flyer

To encourage communities to build greater resilience, the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency is hosting Flood Resilience: Training for Water and Wastewater
Utilities, a training designed for the water sector in Pennsylvania. This one-day
training will provide guidance and information for drinking water and wastewater
utilities to enhance their ability to withstand a flooding event, minimize damage,
and rapidly recover from disruptions to service.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES
• Learn how to use the U.S. EPA tool “Flood Resilience: A Basic Guide for Water
and Wastewater Utilities” (Flood Resilience Guide)
• Complete an example flood assessment using the Guide that also enables you
to repeat the assessment at your facility
• Learn how to identify mitigation measures to effectively protect your utility
from flooding
• Learn about funding options for implementation of mitigation measures
• Network and learn from each other

TRAINING FORMAT
This training will include working sessions on each of the four primary sections of
the “Flood Resilience Guide”, provide real-world examples of recent flood impacts,
as well as mitigation efforts to increase resilience and provide information about
funding options for mitigation measures that utilities may want to implement.
Participating organizations may include area water and wastewater utilities;
stormwater utilities; technical service providers; water sector associations; and
consultants.

A scenario used during the training examines the impact of flooding on a
hypothetical utility and provides participants an opportunity to conduct an
example flood assessment.
