Resilience, water equity, and the state of PFAS/PFOA regulations were some of the key topics at WEFTEC this year. Shawn Corrigan, a Carollo risk and resilience principal, recently sat down with Engineering News-Record to talk about the growing interest among municipalities and utilities in resilience plans, and the benefits of considering the sustainability and resilience of infrastructure.
Teams at Carollo Engineers have helped about 30 U.S. drinking water utilities develop risk assessment and emergency response plans required under the 2018 American Water Infrastructure Act. These plans evaluate risks associated with everything from hurricanes and other natural hazards to pathogens and cyberterrorism.
