Addressing Climate Change Impacts on Infrastructure: Preparing for Change – Potable Water Systems


Climate change may reduce availability of reliable water, due to droughts, degradation of water quality, and disruption in service.

Since safe potable water is essential to the economic and physical health of a community, climate change impacts on potable water supplies will have wide-reaching implications for development projects and programs.

Adaptation options such as improving water capture and storage, spreading and implementing best practices in water conservation, and protecting water quality, reduce climate change risks.
