An ideal water program will provide the capability to withstand, adapt, and recover from a disaster as well as utilize a diversity of solutions to drive down water consumption and ensure long-term water availability. Thus, diversity of solutions and decreasing costs and waste contribute to resilience and are ultimate goals of an effective water program. This webinar will discuss how alternative solutions and resilience can work together to create an effective water program at the site level.

While it is not a prerequisite, we recommend taking the course Water Management Basics (FEMP37A) as this training would be of benefit.
