Riversmart Communities: Supporting Ecologically Restorative Flood Prevention And Remediation In New England

This project links fluvial geomorphology to New England-specific climate, landscape, ecology, population, and infrastructure to develop best management practices for flood prevention. It will uncover challenges and constraints caused by distinct jurisdictional and institutional fragmentation, highlighting successful strategies for overcoming these. The extension aspect will take this much-needed scientific and institutional knowledge and disseminate it to towns, government officials, landowners, businesses, environmental organizations, road crews, and others.
