Extreme weather results in unprecedented increasingly common rainfall intensities. Additionally, the majority of infrastructure flood inundation cases occur at sparsely gauged locations, which adds a compounding complexity to the accuracy of flood prediction, mitigation measures, and spatial extents. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will include presentations describing recent transportation project cases to estimate, mitigate, and prepare for flooding. Case studies include agencies such as NASA, Virginia Department of Transportation, District Department of Transportation, Washington D.C., City of Virginia Beach, VA, and Chesterfield County, VA.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committees on Mechanics and Drainage of Saturated and Unsaturated Geomaterials and Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Stormwater.


Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates.  The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information.  Contact Patrice Davenport to inquire about becoming a TRB sponsor or global affiliate organization.


A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
