COURSE NO: C02-076
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Earthquake Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how water and wastewater utilities can be more resilient to earthquakes. It provides the best practices from utilities that have used mitigation measures to address the earthquake threat.


An earthquake is a sudden and violent shaking of the ground caused by movement within the earth’s crust or by volcanic activity. The water sector is particularly vulnerable to earthquake damage and service disruptions. By understanding the threat of earthquakes and the potential impacts to both the water infrastructure and the community, water utility owners and operators can make more informed decisions on earthquake mitigation options.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to environmental, civil, and structural engineers as well as others interested in learning more about how wastewater utilities can be more resilient to earthquakes.
