Presenter: Michael Simpson, Antioch University New England

Moderator, Nancy Beller-Simms, Program Director for the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate Program Office’s, Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP)

This webinar will use the cities of Minneapolis and Victoria, MN to describe how to conduct a urban stormwater vulnerability assessment within the context of a projection of increased frequency of more extreme precipitation events. Options for building resilience into the system will be discussed, along with a cost analysis of different options that may be available for dealing with waters exceeding the capacity of the current capacity. Included in the discussion will be examples of how low-impact development and green infrastructure can be used to mitigate projected impacts.

Participants will leave the webinar with:
