Climate change poses one of the most significant challenges of our time. Not only must our society curb greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel use, but we must adapt to rising sea levels, increased droughts and floods, and extreme storm events, all of which will affect our wastewater infrastructure.

The wastewater community plays a significant role in addressing climate change. Wastewater agencies across the state are improving the energy efficiency of their operations to reduce demands on fossil fuel energy sources, producing renewable energy using biogas, solar, and wind, reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, and developing strategies to adapt to expected changes in climate.
