Using Wetlands as Solutions to Reduce Flood Damage Risks in the Lake Superior Basin
May 15, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
To help communities find cost-effective solutions to their flooding and infrastructure problems, the Wisconsin Wetlands Association (WWA) is aiming to promote and demonstrate the concept of Natural Flood Management (NFM) in the Lake Superior Basin. NFM is a watershed-based approach for implementing ‘slow the flow’ practices that incorporate natural river and landscape processes to store water and limit the erosive energy of runoff. In this presentation, Kyle Magyera will highlight the work of the interdisciplinary partnership WWA has convened to study the impacts of erosion-induced wetland drainage. He’ll also describe how the partnership is identifying opportunities to reconnect floodplains and restore hydrology in headwater wetlands and streams to build climate-resilient natural infrastructure.
