Summary:Welcome to EPA's Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) Climate Scenarios Projection Map. This map provides easy-to-access scenario-based climate change projections drawn from CREAT. The impacts from a changing climate, including extreme heat and more intense storms, present changes to water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities and the communities they serve. Understanding how climate change may affect a utility's ability to maintain and deliver adequate, reliable, and sustainable water supplies and clean water services is the first step in climate-related planning. Click on each tab to explore different scenarios for specific climate conditions and consider which ones you would wish to learn more about using the Resources tab.
