CPO’s Northeast RISA launches special webinar series on adapting stormwater management for extreme precipitation


Extreme precipitation events are occurring more frequently in many parts of the United States, and the frequency of such events is expected to grow further as the climate warms. Engineers and planners for stormwater utilities and other infrastructure sectors are beginning to do more to plan for extreme precipitation, but these efforts have been highly variable, depending on location, and do not yet reflect a consensus on best practices for analysis or planning.

The Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN), a CPO RISA team, is organizing a series of webinars showcasing different methods of incorporating climate change considerations into stormwater planning products (such as Intensity-Design-Frequency curves, design storms, and/or sub-hourly precipitation time series used in hydraulic and hydrologic modeling).  These webinars are free and open to the public but are intended for a technical audience with hydraulic & hydrologic modeling experience.
