This risk assessment tool allows water utilities to evaluate potential impacts of climate change. You can also identify adaptation options to address impacts using both traditional risk assessment and scenario-based methods. CREAT provides:
- Lists of drinking water and wastewater utility assets (such as water resources, treatment plants, and pump stations) that climate change could impact
- Possible climate change-related threats (such as flooding, drought, and water quality)
- Adaptive measures that utilities can implement to reduce potential impacts
The tool guides users through identifying regional climate change threats and designing adaptation plans. After assessment, CREAT provides a series of risk reduction and cost reports to allow you to evaluate various adaptation options as part of long-term planning.
