Climate Change Vulnerability Analysis for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District

October 2014

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District (District) requested this vulnerability analysis report, which assesses how climate change will impact the District’s existing, as well as proposed, infrastructure and services. The analysis aims to provide the District with the information needed to make strategic planning decisions, such as capital investments. The report documents how climate change may increase flood events and combined sewer overflow volume during larger precipitation events, and increase risk of odor and corrosion within wastewater facilities as well as decreased flow in waterways during periods of warm weather and drought.
