Southeast Iowa Community-Based Water Resiliency Workshop
Co-Hosted by U.S. EPA and the City of Burlington

WHERE: Burlington, IA, or Virtual

DATE: March 30, 2023

CEU CREDIT INFORMATION: Water and wastewater operator CEUs are available for IN PERSON attendance



CBWR assists drinking water and wastewater utilities, and the communities they serve, in increasing resiliency to water interruptions from all hazards. This workshop will provide an overview of climate change impacts on water resilience, as well as feature a utilities manager perspective on water resiliency and natural disasters. A panel will further discuss water resiliency and emergency planning, and a roundtable discussion focused on both short- and long-term water shortages will give all participants a chance to discuss their plans and preparations for sustained operations without water services.

The workshop's objectives are to:

  • Promote a better understanding of public and private sector interdependencies with water.
  • Foster a greater understanding of climate change and its potential impacts on water services.
  • Identify actions and resources needed to respond to and recover from a water emergency, both short- and long-term.
  • Assist stakeholders in building strong response plans and communications for water service interruptions.

This workshop is targeted to drinking water and wastewater operators, emergency services sector personnel, food processing and manufacturing operators, public health and healthcare facility emergency planning staff, retirement home operators, livestock operators, educational institution personnel, and state primacy agency representatives.




There is no registration fee. Space to attend in-person is limited to the first 50 registrants. However, there is an option to attend the morning workshop presentations (but not the afternoon discussions) for those not in the first 50 registered.
