IWA Flood Resilience Program Goals and Products
The IWA Flood Resilience Program focuses on the nine IWA watersheds: Clear Creek, English River, Upper Iowa River, Middle Cedar River, Upper Wapsipinicon River, Dubuque/Bee Branch Creek, North Raccoon River, and East and West Nishnabotna Rivers. The goals of the Flood Resilience Program are to:
- Measure, visualize, and communicate flood resilience resources
- Enhance flood resilience content in formal watershed plans
- Improve social resources for flood resilience
The IWA Flood Resilience Program provides value to Iowa watershed communities through establishing partnerships and developing tools that improve the visualization of flood resilience benefitting future mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery actions. Together, we can make our watershed communities more flood resilient.
