Who We Are

Who We Are

The Resilient Utility Coalition provides leadership in assessing and adapting utility operations to address any potential disruption. The term “resilience” as defined by the U.S. Government, refers to the ability to adapt to changing conditions and withstand, and rapidly recover from, disruption due to emergencies.

RUC seeks to enhance the usefulness of climate science as well as other sciences by developing adaptation strategies and improving water management decision-making in the face of uncertainty.

RUC’s primary objectives:

Benchmarking: develop regional guidelines and best practices manuals for utilities’ information sharing: implement a sharing platform for with databases, contacts, guidelines and other information

Data Management: data analytics and coordinated software platforms for utilities

Foster Innovation: partnerships with universities for research and development, technology committees, internships

Emergency Preparedness: formulate tools for regional integration

Partnerships and Community Outreach: develop key partnerships with stakeholders and encourage community involvement
