New approaches for managing flood risk in the face of climate change
Watermark magazine, Fall 2017

 

Municipal governments in BC are responsible for managing flood risk in their communities.

KWL's David Roche co-authored an article in the Fall 2017 edition of Watermark magazine that describes the development of the District of Squamish's Integrated Flood Hazard Managment Plan. After a three-year process that involved input from multiple stakeholder groups, Squamish now has a blueprint to respond to local risk tolerance, guide community develpment, prioritize capital investment, and support sustainable growth.
