This session focused on innovations to address climate change and water infrastructure. Participants went into detail about three key policy plays, including the need to increase administrative and financial resources for the WIFIA financing program, the potential to expand emergency relief funds for “betterments” or increased resiliency, and the need to establish outcome-based permitting for water management. For engineering consultants, this subject matter will help firms provide strategic advice to clients on water infrastructure financing and permitting as well as climate resiliency.

Panelists include:
The Honorable Debbie Kling, Mayor, Nampa, Idaho
Chuck Chaitovitz, Vice President, Environmental Affairs and Sustainability, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Radhika Fox, CEO, US Water Alliance
Edwin Crooks, Senior Vice President, HNTB
