Emerging Issues Following The 2016 Floods says
As we take stock of the losses incurred by the floods of March and April 2016, it is increasingly clear that many of the impacts were outside of the mapped floodplain, and that the scale of losses will make recovery a long and complex process.

The flooding has sparked conversations regarding the current standards in place, the need for watershed scale planning, and how to reduce the impacts from future flood events. This workshop will focus on lessons learned from these events and opportunities to implement best practices during the recovery.
