Stormwater programs across the Southeast are facing the increasing challenge of managing more resilient systems to deliver the anticipated level of service to their community.  Disruptions to normal operating practices play a significant role in occupying resources, borrowing available funding, and delaying proposed improvements.  Whether it’s flooding, droughts, asset failures, or environmental impacts, the following seminar will provide experiences and expertise from around the Southeast in incorporating resiliency into operations and practices for your program.

A sampling of topics will include:

  • Contributing Factors and Impacts to Resiliency
  • Operation and Maintenance Preparation and Response
  • Programmatic Planning for Resiliency
  • Capital Planning for Resiliency
  • Predictive Planning and Response
  • Funding and Allocating Resources for Response
  • Partnering and Leveraging during Emergency Operations
