Water, Water Everywhere: The Increasing Threat of Stormwater Flooding in Greater Boston @ Zoom (Virtual)
May 3 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Water, Water Everywhere: The Increasing Threat of Stormwater Flooding in Greater Boston @ Zoom (Virtual)

MAPC is releasing new research that analyzed 27,000 flood claims from the historic March 2010 storms that dropped 18 inches of rain across Eastern Massachusetts. $59m in disaster assistance was paid out. We found that only 4% of disaster claims were located in FEMA 1% chance flood zones. With the prospect of more frequent and severe storms due to a changing climate, what can local, state, and the federal government do to better understand, prepare for, and minimize flooding and flood damage?

Presenters and panelists:

  • Anne Herbst, Principal Environmental Planner – retired, MAPC
  • Mia Mansfield, Director of Climate Adaptation and Resilience, MA Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
  • Jason Mammone, P.E., Director of Engineering, Town of Dedham
  • Van Du, Senior Environmental Planner, MAPC – Moderator

Following this event, all registrants will receive a copy of the report via email.

Webinar: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Residual Designation Authority Permit @ Zoom (Virtual)
May 15 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

EPA Region 1 continues to work on the development of a permit referred to as an “RDA Permit” – that will regulate stormwater run-off in the Charles, Mystic and Neponset River Watersheds.

In this webinar, the EPA will discuss the background and current development of the RDA permit, the types of actions that the permit will require, and will answer questions. The EPA is particularly interested in hearing from municipalities about how this permit can best be implemented to meet local as well as federal clean water goals.

For those unable to attend the presentation, there will be a chance after the draft permit is issued later this year, to provide comments to the EPA.
