Recorded Webinar: Rivers and Flooding
Author: Michael Penzo
This On-Demand webinar provides an overview of rivers and flooding. For more than 200 years, Americans have lived and worked on floodplains, depending on soil, water supply, ease of waste disposal, and the commerce. The pioneers moved west modifying the land: cutting and burning the trees, and then modifying the natural drainage. If the floodplain and its relation to the river are not recognized, flood control and drainage of wetlands become prime concerns.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Overview of flooding along river floodplains
- Development practices that contribute to increased flooding
- Relationship between floodplain development and severity of floods
