Urban Flooding: Reality, Resilience, and the Way Forward

Monday, July 13 – 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. MDT

Urban flooding in the United States has dire consequences and is growing worse due to extreme weather, outdated planning practices, and expanding populations. At every step of the way— from forecasting and warning of flood risk to recovery and building back after disasters—there are opportunities to move further toward resilience. Panelists in this session will discuss the reality of current practices and work being done to protect communities before, during, and after flooding.
