Forum on Managing Floodwaters and Economic Recovery

Super-storm Sandy flooded cities and changed coastlines, causing $62 billion in damage making it one of the most costly weather events in U.S. history.

One year after Superstorm Sandy made landfall, Center for Natural Resources co-sponsored a full-day forum to discuss strategies and approaches to make communities more resilient, mitigate storm impact and help plan for the future.
