Earthquake Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the earthquake threat
- Knowing how to Identify vulnerable assets and determine consequences
- Learning how to pursue mitigation and funding options
- Familiarizing with the available tools to assess specific structures
- Familiarizing with the standards and resources for earthquake resilience
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Earthquake Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities” which is based on the U.S. EPA publication number EPA-810-B-18-001 dated March 2018.
