November 13 –  Assessing Vulnerability of Water Conveyance Infrastructure from a Changing Climate in the Context of a Changing Landscape

(Noon to 1:15 PM ET)

Presenter: Michael Simpson, Co-Director, Antioch Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience; Chair, Department of Environmental Studies

This webinar will present results from NOAA and US EPA funded research from 2007 thru 2013, in the context of rural, the peri-urban and urban watersheds in New England and the upper Midwest. This research examined the hydrologic impact of climate change and land use scenarios on existing water conveyance infrastructure. The built infrastructure in the watersheds were assessed and mapped in order to generate multiple build-out analyses for the watersheds using current land use regulations. Vulnerable infrastructure was identified and a marginal cost analysis was completed for alternative actions of response. Participants will learn how these studies informed community resilience that increased stakeholder capacity at the local level in adapting to change.

The webinar is hosted by Antioch University New England and EPA Regions 1 and 2.

January 29 -  Green Infrastructure and Flood Resiliency-Land Use Management  as an Adaptation Strategy in the Built Environment

(Noon to 1:15 PM ET)

Presenter: Dr. Rob Roseen, Associate at Geosyntec Consultants in Portsmouth, NH

This webinar addresses assessment, planning, and adaptation to not only better prepare for the next emergency, but to sustainably manage flooding, and stormwater to maintain human health and a vibrant local economy. Participants will leave this webinar with knowledge about the latest innovative approaches to understand the effects of inland flooding and apply low-impact development (LID), site design, and smart growth practices at different scales of implementation. There will be reference to pioneering hydrology-based, sub-watershed approaches that have shown mitigation potential not only for storm water and flooding, but to the loss and degradation in water quality.

This webinar is part of the series, Weathering Change: Local Solutions for Strong Communities, presented by Antioch University New England, in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
