TOPIC - Making Water Utilities Climate Resilient SPEAKERS - Craig Wells P.E., ENV SP, Regional Manager, McKim & Creed Jessica Beach P.E., Utilities Engineer, City of St. Augustine
With a price tag upwards of $200 billion, the 2017 hurricane season was the most expensive in U.S. history. Seventeen named storms pummeled the country, particularly Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico. This surpassed the previous record of $159 billion in damages set by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This is according to a November 30, 2017 article by Willie Drye in National Geographic.com. And although many areas are still reeling from 2017, meteorologists don’t anticipate a reprieve in 2018. So with the frequency and intensity of storms increasing, how can communities prepare for damaging storms? The answer can be found in pre-disaster climate resiliency and risk mitigation planning.
Craig Wells, PE, ENV SP, regional manager with McKim & Creed, and Jessica Beach, PE, an engineer with the City of St. Augustine’s public works department, will discuss what municipalities can and should do to protect their critical water infrastructure from sea level rise. Craig has developed specialized experience and expertise in helping municipalities deal with the current and future issues of sea level rise and climate resiliency. Jessica oversees St. Augustine’s stormwater program and is instrumental in helping the city develop climate-resilient infrastructure and mitigate risk.
Craig’s and Jessica’s presentation will explore the proactive options available for climate resiliency preparation, including baseline risk, impact studies, modeling, assessment, adaptation and funding sources.
Conducting a successful pilot test can be difficult. This seminar is designed to help anyone planning to work on a water treatment pilot project. What should they think about to save time and money?

Please bring your own gun if you have one but there are several guns available for rent at the facility. Ammo is available at the facility as well but if you bring your own, please make sure it’s acceptable to the facility. The highest scoring five individuals from the tournament will enter a shootoff at the end of the team play. Trophies will be presented for top 3 teams after door prizes are announced and then the top 5 individuals will compete for 4 trophies.
