Winter Class: Mitigating Flood Risk through Better Gardening
February 15 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
702 Langdon St., Madison, WI 53706
Increasing urbanization coupled with increases in the magnitude and frequency of extreme rainfalls related to climate change have presented challenges to storm water management in and around Madison. Recent flooding, most notably in August of 2018, has endangered public safety, property and the environment. Dr. Potter’s talk will focus on various ways to mitigate the impact of environmental and climate changes and to ensure that new land developments do not increase downstream flood risk.
Ken Potter’s joined the UW-Madison faculty in 1978 and throughout his career here, his research and community outreach have focused on the management of storm water runoff from developed lands.
The cost is $15 (Free for Friends of ACG Members and UW Students with ID). Tickets available @ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mitigating-flood-risk-through-better-gardening-tickets-78894263867
