National Flood Perspective

Dr Gerry Galloway, University of Maryland

The National Capital Region

Dr Gregory Baecher, University of Maryland

Dr Mark Houck, George Mason University

Dr Pradeep Behera, University of the District of Columbia

Development pressures that are moving more people into hazard areas, a crumbling flood protection infrastructure, and IPCC predictions of increased flooding as a result of climate change threaten to increase already rising flood damages. Catastrophic flooding is occurring at an increasing rate across the United States, while at the same time much of downtown Washington and many other local areas are only marginally protected. How are national and local governments dealing with these challenges? Presentations by members of the newly formed National Capital Region Flood Risk Assessment Program will address these issues and how AWRA-NCR members can assist in dealing with this threat.
