In March of 2007, the Office of Water established a Climate Change Workgroup made up of senior water program managers from Headquarters and the EPA Regional Offices. This Workgroup assessed the implications of climate change for clean water and drinking water programs managed by the EPA Office of Water. After meeting with interested stakeholders, the Workgroup developed a National Water Program Strategy: Response to Climate Change, which was published in September 2008. Over the past year, the National Water Program has been both finalizing the Strategy and proceeding with implementation of many of the actions described in the Strategy. This report describes the progress made in implementing the Strategy during 2008. The Strategy provides an overview of the major impacts of a changing climate on water resources and water programs, describes overall goals for the water program response to climate change, and identifies 44 specific actions for EPA to take to accomplish these goals during 2008 and 2009.
