- Your state and community
We are already observing the impacts of climate change on water resources in the United States. These impacts range from severe drought and wildfires to more extreme weather and increased flooding, among many others.
Our state must address these challenges by integrating climate change into water resources planning and by developing strategies to reduce our vulnerability to climate related natural disasters. Our rapidly warming climate brings a new level of complexity to managing our waters and the communities that depend upon them.
Recognizing these challenges early on and planning for them is essential if we want to protect public health, safeguard our environment, and manage the financial costs of a changing climate.
