Water Wonks Lecture Series #5

May 22 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The Regional Flood Planning Process

Join Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance for their May installment of their Water Wonks series, which will focus on the regional flood planning process and why conserving floodplains are important.

Annalisa Peace (GEAA Executive Director) and Debbie Reid (GEAA Technical Director) will explain the Texas Water Development Board’s regional flood planning process, which will allocate state funds for flood mitigation strategies and provides opportunities to employ green infrastructure and land conservation strategies. The video by David Skuodas (Director of Design, Construction, and Maintenance at the Mile High Flood District) presents his analysis of why governments are often playing catch-up to pay for maintenance of stormwater channels, basins, and other structures. In many cases, it would take hundreds or thousands of years for a city to collect enough taxes to pay to adequately maintain drainage infrastructure from new development. Mr. Skuodas advocates for working with the existing natural stream channels, maintaining flood resiliency and water quality, protecting public safety, and saving taxpayers money.
