Description:

June 2013 marks the fifth anniversary of the epic Eastern Iowa floods of 2008, which caused greater damage to the Iowa and Cedar River watersheds than any other natural disaster in recorded history. The fifth-year anniversary is an excellent opportunity to discuss what has changed as a result of the floods and ongoing policy challenges.

Please register to join us for the symposium. The goals of the symposium are to:

  • Generate productive discussions among local leaders, policy makers, residents, and scholars
  • Begin to bridge the gap between rural and urban approaches to water management.
  • Identify unresolved water management policies and explore how they might reach resolution.
