AWM lll – Developing a Farm Flood Plan Monday, May 21, 2018 6:30-9:30pm
If you farm in the lowlands of Western Washington, sooner or later flooding will impact your farm and family. For many this is a semi-regular event that can take a toll emotionally and financially. Developing a farm flood plan can help your farm prepare for the worst by taking a smart approach to planning and infrastructure. Speakers from King County Flood Control, King Conservation District, and the insurance industry will discuss the components of an effective flood plan, infrastructure improvements, farm pads, and the regulations influencing floodplain management. In addition, the nonprofit Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance will provide a demo of their Floodzilla 2.0 flood monitoring project.
All workshops are free, we ask that you pre-register (for one or all) to ensure we have enough resources available for all attendees. Register online at AgWater.EventBrite.com. For more information, contact Kate Ryan firstname.lastname@example.org, (425) 357-6024.
