Final Public Water Systems or Domestic Wells Resilience Assessment Survey


This survey focuses on assessing the resilience of public / private water systems and domestic wells . The parameters listed in the matrix reflect various aspects of resilience for this sector. After reviewing the matrix, we would like your input related to where your water system or domestic well of interest is most and least resilient. We also are interested in hearing from you about the most concerning issue you face due to the anticipated climate shocks. These statements will be useful in developing adaptation strategies.

You are welcome to complete 1 or more surveys. Please complete a separate survey for each public / private water system or domestic well of interest.


This survey focusses on assessing the resilience of public/private water systems (PWS) * and domestic wells. The parameters listed in the matrix reflect various aspects of resilience for this sector. Some of the parameters are not applicable to individual domestic wells. Each water system should consider these aspects as they work to evaluate their own vulnerabilities and build system resilience. We want to know which of these parameters represent the most challenging aspects of preparing your system for climate change. 


*Public and private water systems are non-transient community water systems with 15 service connections or serve 25 people at least 60 days out of the year. Commercial, educational, and other transient water systems are not included in this category of use.

Question 1 of 14

Is your interest in completing this survey to consider the resilience of a public/ private water system* or domestic well?

*Public and private water systems are non-transient community water systems with 15 service connections or serve 25 people at least 60 days out of the year. Commercial, educational, and other transient water systems are not included in this category of use. (Please note you can complete the survey multiple times if you would like to provide input for multiple water systems and or wells.)

Question 11 of 14

Please provide a concise problem statement to describe the vulnerabilities and the consequences facing your water system or domestic well.

For example, "The only source of water for Public Water System XYZ is surface water. Surface water is expected to diminish in the future. We do not have another source of supply. We serve 2,000 customers and are the primary water system in the area."
