New Columbia Water Center White Paper: Water Management and Climate Change — The Case for Newark and Philadelphia
The Columbia Water Center released a new white paper yesterday, titled “Water Management and Climate Change — The Case for Newark and Philadelphia.”
In the paper, the authors, Ipsita Kumar and Siquan Zhu, analyze vulnerability of Newark and Philadelphia’s water supplies to climate variability using historical precipitation and temperature data.
The authors found that under the scenarios tested, the city of Newark could face poor reliability in the future. Philadelphia, however, could “reliably comply with demand under the hypothetical scenarios” the authors tested.
