Leading Practices for Achieving Resilient & Sustainable Water Infrastructure Systems
December 6-7, 2017
Critical water sector infrastructure systems face a multitude of hazards that must be identified, assessed, communicated, and managed appropriately. Recent hurricanes, floods, droughts, fires, tsunamis, tornadoes, earthquakes, and aging infrastructure remind us that natural, technological, and human-caused hazards take a high toll on communities. In these challenging times, water sector utilities must focus on maximizing value and leveraging their investment wherever possible.
Keynote speakers will include Houston Water and Miami-Dade County to address their experiences with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, respectively.
