MD Department of Planning – Preparing Critical Infrastructure for Climate Change
Critical infrastructure such as highways, power grids, and water utilities, are threatened by extreme events associated with climate change, including hurricanes, flooding, drought and heat waves. Planners, emergency management offices and public works departments are increasingly concerned that our critical infrastructure is not yet properly sited or designed to withstand climate change.
Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network as Jacobs Solutions, Inc. presents the recently completed 5-year Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment, Adaptation and Mitigation Planning (CCVAAMP) project for WSSC Water, one of the largest water and wastewater utilities in the United States, and Baltimore County, Maryland discusses its Climate Action Plan and Resilience Assessment. With service to more than 2.5 million customers, WSSC Water and Baltimore County are leading the way to protecting our critical water infrastructure.
