Improving watershed management
We recognize that water is a shared resource that is critical to communities, economic development and wildlife. We work to minimize our operational impacts through stormwater and flood management and erosion and sediment control to help maintain local water quality. Exelon does not own or operate any power generation facilities and our water is primarily sourced from municipal water supplies for use in offices and service buildings.
Guided by our Water Resource Management Policy, we address site-specific,
water-related opportunities and risks. Engaging with relevant stakeholders at the local level enables us to most effectively address these specific water challenges. As we look toward the future, we anticipate that water will be a key challenge for Exelon and many other businesses globally. Water scarcity is a critical risk for our industry with the potential to be exacerbated by the effects of climate change. With changing weather patterns and growing competition for existing resources, effective water management is increasingly important.
Exelon is continually working to define the scope of this issue, including through climate scenario analysis, to refine our management strategies.
