The State of Iowa recently completed a project entitled the Iowa Watershed Approach focused on improving community resilience to floods, droughts, and declining water quality. This science-based project followed a systematic process of hydrologic assessment, goal setting, development of watershed plans, installation of monitoring systems, project construction, community engagement, identification of vulnerable populations, and details participant surveys and quantitative assessment. The presentation will provide a vision for a more resilient Iowa across all sizes of cities, from small rural communities to large urban centers.

Larry Weber is the Edwin B. Green Chair in Hydraulics in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and director of IIHR—Hydroscience and Engineering, the nation’s oldest academic research program focused on hydraulics, hydrology, and fluid mechanics.
