Hurricane Florence dumped as much as three feet of water on parts of Southeastern North Carolina. This occurred only 1 year after massive flooding in Houston, Texas. Epic rainfall events, while still 'epic,' may no longer be considered infrequent. What does this mean for engineering design standards? What storms should we consider? Where is it OK to develop? What guidance does the engineering code of conduct provide? Insights to these questions and more are the focus of "It just rained two feet, now what?"
This seminar includes a panel discussion with Andrea Hendrickson (MnDOT State Hydraulic Engineer), Elizabeth Stout (City of Minneapolis Water Resources Regulatory Manager), Erin Anderson-Wenz (Vice President and Water Resources Engineering at Barr Engineering Company) and featured seminar speaker Bill Hunt from North Carolina State University on the topic of extreme weather events and their impact on stormwater infrastructure.
