Drought Response and Recovery: A Basic Guide to Water Utilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information about water utilities including drought response and recovery.


Many states have experienced prolonged periods of abnormally dry or unusually hot weather that threaten the availability of water and this trend is projected to continue. Unlike other hazards, such as flooding and earthquakes, droughts develop gradually over months or years and it may take an affected community or water utility just as long, if not longer, to recover.


Droughts can result in significant economic, social, environmental and water utility operational impacts. This guide provides practical solutions to help drinking water utilities respond to and recover from drought and presents real-world examples, best practices and lessons learned in drought response and recovery.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to environmental and civil engineers as well as other professionals who are interested in learning about drought response and recovery.
