CONFRONTING CLIMATE CHANGE: An Early Analysis of Water and Wastewater Adaptation Costs


CONFRONTING CLIMATE CHANGE: An Early Analysis of Water and Wastewater Adaptation Costs (October 2009, PDF, 104 pages)

The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) and the Association of the Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA) released a report icon-pdf today detailing the impacts climate change can have on wastewater and drinking water utilities and estimating the adaptation costs for these critical facilities to be between $448 billion and $944 billion through 2050. The associations, which represent the nation’s public wastewater and drinking water agencies, urged Congress and the Obama administration to recognize that climate change is fundamentally about water and to implement policies that will help utilities take timely actions to adapt.
