Recently released by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Framing the Challenge of Urban Flooding in the United States is a consensus study report that explores the causes, impacts, and actions for managing urban flooding in metropolitan areas. Urban flooding is the inundation of land or property in a built environment; caused by rain falling on increased amounts of impervious surfaces and overwhelming the capacity of drainage systems.
This seminar features Chad Berginnis, the Executive Director of the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) who will discuss the recently released report, ASFPM programs and research, and developing issues such as flood insurance reform. A panel of local experts will discuss how they are addressing urban flooding in their communities.
