The Iowa Flood Center will join the Upper Wapsipinicon Watershed Management Authority for their quarterly meeting on Tuesday, February 21, beginning at 1:30 pm at the Buchanan County Courthouse Assembly Room in Independence, IA. IFC staff and project partners will share an update on the activities of the Iowa Watershed Approach (IWA) project.

The Iowa Flood Center update will focus on the community Flood Resilience Program that is a subcomponent of the IWA. The IFC team will partner with local organizations, including community action programs, to engage and support communities in flood resilience planning to:

  • Identifying flood resilience strengths, challenges, and priorities
  • Developing actions or interventions that will aid in building resilience to floods
  • Implementing these actions or interventions
  • Measuring the progress toward flood resiliency

The WMA meeting is an opportunity to stay involved in the activities of the IWA and ask questions about the program. Meetings are open to the public and anyone is welcome to attend!
