Rainscaping Iowa

Rainscaping Iowa is a statewide campaign promoting infiltration based storm water management practices that result in the improvement and protection of Iowa's soil and water resources. The program is a collaboration among several state and local agencies in Iowa and is dedicated to educating the public and training professionals in infiltration-based stormwater management. Rainscaping Iowa is funded through a variety of state and local sources, including the state Department of Transportation’s Living Roadway Trust, along with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Department of Agricultural and Land Stewardship, Department of Economic Development, the Iowa Storm Water Education Program, and the Polk Soil and Water Conservation District.

Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO)

The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a tool intended to facilitate the integration of climate change science into land management planning. The overarching goal is to provide land managers with the best available science they need to effectively and efficiently sustain forests and the services they provide under a changing climate.

Creating Resilient Water Utilities Initiative (CRWU)

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Creating Resilient Water Utilities (formally Climate Resilient Water Utilities - CRWU) initiative to assist water and wastewater utilities in preparing for climate change. CRWU offers a suite of tools and resources to promote the understanding of climate science, associated risks to the water sector, and pertinent adaptation options for utilities and communities to implement. EPA designed the CRWU resources to translate complex climate projections into usable formats - to assist in building a more resilient water sector.

Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT) 3.0

This risk assessment tool assists drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utility owners and operators in understanding potential climate change impacts to the water sector; assessing related risks at their utilities; and evaluating adaptation options. CREAT allows users to perform these analyses using scenario-based decision making in multiple time periods using pre-loaded data and downscaled local climate information.  CREAT can support utilities in initiating adaptation planning and provides suggested customizable adaptation strategies that can be implemented at the user’s utility.

Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA)

JAWRA is a publication on multidisciplinary water resources issues. JAWRA papers present ideas derived from multiple disciplines woven together to give insight into a critical water issue, or are based primarily upon a single discipline with important applications to other disciplines. Papers often cover the topics of recent AWRA conferences such as riparian ecology, geographic information systems, adaptive management, and water policy.  .
