EPA Releases Climate Change Draft
The EPA Office of Water has released a draft Climate Change Adaptation Implementation Plan for public comment. In support of President Obama's Climate Action Plan and Executive Order, the Implementation Plan provides detailed information about the actions EPA plans to take across the country to help communities adapt to a changing climate.
The impacts of a changing climate - including increased extreme weather, floods, and droughts - affect EPA's work to protect clean water. The draft plan from the Office of Water provides an overview of the opportunities available for EPA to respond to the challenges that a changing climate poses for the national water program. The pubic comment period closes on January 3, 2014.
