National Water Program Creates Climate Change Workgroup

National Water Program Creates Climate Change Workgroup

The National Water Program is establishing a Water Program Climate Change Workgroup, including representatives of Headquarters water program offices, EPA Regional water offices as well as representatives of the Office of Air and Radiation and the Office of Research and Development, to improve understanding of climate change impacts on water resources. As part of this effort, the Workgroup will take steps to develop a Strategy later this year identifying appropriate, effective and practical actions EPA water program managers can take to adapt program implementation to climate change as well as to support mitigation and research efforts. A copy of the memo is available at www.epa.gov/water
