EPA Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) Risk Assessment Application for Water Utilities

The City of Crisfield worked with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct a risk assessment for flooding utilizing EPA’s Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT). The increasing intensity and frequency of heavy precipitation events, tidal flooding, sea level rise, and coastal storm surge make it critical for Crisfield to address system capabilities to provide reliable stormwater management. Crisfield joined two other Maryland communities, the City of Cambridge and the Town of Chesapeake Beach, to explore how these other systems in the Chesapeake Bay region are impacted by, and how they are addressing, flooding.
