We collaborated with Columbia University’s Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory to conduct a sweeping, multi-year study to evaluate our present-day infrastructure, design specifications, and procedures against expected climate changes.
By gaining a better understanding of projected climate changes across our service area—including increasing temperatures, heavier precipitation events, sea-level rise, and extreme weather—we’re able to identify system vulnerabilities, prioritize investments, and future-proof our infrastructure.
