In 2016, Iowa received a $96.9 million grant from the US Department of Housing and Development to fund its vision for a more resilient state: The Iowa Watershed Approach (IWA). The goals behind the IWA include reducing flood risk, improving water quality, increasing resilience, engaging stakeholders through outreach and education, improving quality of life and developing a replicable program. This is a ‘flood-first’ program that focuses on improving rural watershed resiliency through adoption of conservation practices targeting reduction in peak stream flow during heavy rainfall and improve water quality year-round.

Presenter: Larry Weber (Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering)

Light entrees, snacks, and refreshments will be available for purchase from the Stanley Café.
