Adapting Stormwater Management to a Changing Climate in the Mid-Atlantic and Urban Northeast Regions
- On March 6, 2020
Because extreme rainfall events have exposed critical gaps in planning, the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN) and the Mid- Atlantic Regional Integrated Science and Assessment (MARISA) focused this workshop on urban stormwater management. This workshop examined the challenges of integrated planning within today’s regulatory context, discussed decision support needs for climate resilience planning, and presented innovative strategies for how to integrate climate modeling into hydrologic and hydraulic modeling. Participants discussed challenges, uncertainties and next steps, and heard from exemplar cities that have begun to move forward with incorporating climate resilient design into their stormwater planning and management.
