Integrating Water Quality and Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning Webinar

Please note that this webcast has been rescheduled from December 10 to December 17.

Water program integration and green infrastructure solutions in urban-to-agricultural settings can aid in resilience to flooding, drought, water contamination, erosion, urban heat island, and airborne dust particulates. This webinar will provide tools to help integrate water protection planning (e.g., water quality protection, watershed planning, source water protection) into hazard mitigation planning, provide an overview for hazard mitigation specialists and watershed planners on how to align program goals and activities, and illustrate how planning efforts can be enhanced through a cooperative, coordinated approach. When collaborative concepts are applied during goal-setting and preparation of planning documents, professionals can better leverage the resources available from all programs and stakeholders and achieve multiple benefits. State Hazard Mitigation Plans that have natural resource protection as a goal will be highlighted, as their approaches help mitigate both the impacts of sudden natural disasters as well as the risks to health and water resources in a changing world.
