2010 Floodplain/ Riparian Corridors Management Workshops and Field Tour
Educating public officials and community leaders in the Washington County area about floodplain management will help them make better informed decisions in the complex arena of floodplain management and reduce future flood control problems. It is anticipated that 200 participants will attend both workshops with another 40 taking part in the field tour.
This project will provide community leaders in predominantly rural counties with science-based information and examples of tools and resources they can use when making decisions that affect the floodplains in their communities. Two evening workshops will be held along with a field tour designed to increase awareness and knowledge in public officials and community leaders about environmental issues associated with floodplain management.
