Climate change education for water utilities

About This Project

Stephanie Jacobs has been conducting work with Deborah Riley from Melbourne Water to build an internal conversation starter document, Climate Change Projections for Melbourne Water. Stephanie and Deborah have given multiple presentations together about climate change to help increase knowledge of climate change within the organisation. Stephanie discussed how climate models work and the potential impacts of climate change globally, for Australia and for Melbourne. Deborah then spoke about what Melbourne Water is doing to reduce their carbon footprint. This is part of a series of presentations so far including people at the Brooklyn Pump Station, Head Office and an Asset Management team Knowledge Forum. Stephanie and Deborah hope to present to more groups in Melbourne Water including regional centres such as the Eastern Treatment Plant.
