GoToWebinar


Description

This webinar will focus on how to consider the projected levels of flooding in coastal Mississippi when planning infrastructure, including transportation infrastructure. The material presented will explain why it is important to incorporate projected levels of flooding into planning and what types of data should be considered. The webinar will then focus on the specific tools that can be used to incorporate projected levels of flooding into planning, introducing the Gulf TREE tool selection resource, explaining how different tools work, and offering concrete examples of when and how to utilize various tools. As many bridges and other infrastructure are being replaced in coastal Mississippi, now is the time to act and make sure that projected levels of flooding are reflected in your planning.
