Flood Plain Maps and Long-term Flood Plain Management: One City's Experience

The Red River of the North has exceeded the eighteen foot flood stage in twenty of the last twenty one  years. Since 2000 the Red River has reached the thirty foot major flood stage eight times. Consequently the City leaders and residents of the City of Fargo have become accomplished flood fighters. How has the community stayed successful with repetitive efforts? How has the recent flooding affected what the community expects for a 1% chance event? What have the City leaders done to lessen the risk? Please join us for a discussion of these topics and more with April Walker, City Engineer for the City of Fargo, ND.

Moderator: Ken Hellevang, NDSU Extension Engineer and co-leader, Flood National EDEN Issue Leadership team.
