About

We'll be learning about flood mitigation planning that the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District has been working toward.

The Omaha Area has long been prone to disastrous flooding. An important effort is underway to reduce the risk of flooding and to prevent the considerable loss that can occur during flooding events.

Natural Resource Districts are multi-county governments organized along major watersheds with broad responsibilities to protect and enhance our state’s natural resources. Major Nebraska river basins form the boundaries enabling the NRDs to respond best to local needs.

Objectives

  1. Understand the causes and need for flood mitigation in the Omaha area and how it applies to resiliency planning.
  2. Discuss current projects and future planning to address flood risk and water mananagement.
  3. Evaluate the costs and future funding of these local projects for city resiliency planning efforts.
  4. Analyze additional resiliency efforts to address flood risk in the Omaha metro area.
