Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment of the Town of Prescott’s Sanitary Sewage System

Posted on

For this particular study, the Town of Prescott and Engineers Canada agreed to partner and co-fund an
engineering vulnerability assessment of the Town of Prescott’s sanitary sewage system in the context of
both the existing climate and future climate change, using the PIEVC Protocol (version 9, April 2009). The
main objective of this assessment and pilot study was to identify components of the sanitary sewage
system which are at increased risk of failure, damage, deterioration, reduced operational effectiveness,
and/or reduced life cycle from potential future changes in climate. Additionally, the study report contains
recommendations for remedial action to minimize the vulnerability and/or complete further study to further
quantify the risks.
