Frost & Sullivan will be hosting a webinar Thursday, August 15 at 1 p.m. EDT to look at the types of precautions municipal utilities can make to be prepared for harsh weather conditions, according to a press release.

The webinar will be hosted online with complimentary registration, and the speaker for the event will be Frost & Sullivan Energy and Environment Industry Analyst Eric Meliton.

With the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy fast approaching in October, municipal water and wastewater utilities in North America are surprisingly no further ahead in their preparations for similar major wet weather events. This briefing will investigate the infrastructure challenges related to storm water management, and the short- and long-term implications of some of these initiatives.

Webinar highlights:

• New treatment technologies and system management solutions used to address these issues

• Regional regulations under development to evoke long-term changes

• The industry challenges related to infrastructure spending

• Short- and long-term infrastructure initiatives related to major wet weather events

This briefing provides a platform to discuss the ongoing issues related to storm water and wet weather infrastructure, and will benefit engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firms; regulatory personnel; original equipment manufacturers of water and wastewater treatment technologies; and municipal water and wastewater utility personnel.

“The devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina, Isaac and Sandy remains vivid in those that were affected, even long after clean up and recovery,” observed Frost & Sullivan Energy and Environment Industry Analyst Eric Meliton. “Despite billions of dollars in damages caused each year by storms of this nature, the North American water and wastewater infrastructure segment has not readily prepared for future storms of this magnitude, nor have they properly allocated spending to prepare for future disasters, even in places that have most recently been affected.”
