Since 2011 the region has made considerable investments in preparing for future floods. We all want to be more resilient when disasters like Tropical Storm Irene or the lake flooding of 2011 come about. Agencies, municipalities, and individuals have engaged in education about tools for developing in safer places, protecting the functions of watersheds, and adapting critical infrastructure for future flood events. To further that goal, LCC collaborated with the Connecticut River Watershed Council to produce a short video on lakefront erosion solutions. The piece was one of a series of videos designed to help communities prepare for and minimize flood damage and qualify for post-disaster funding.
