This field trip will include a site visit to an active alluvial fan and discussion on flooding mitigation. Subsidence from groundwater pumping created fissures that required extensive rehabilitation of the south end of the structure.
Participants will see recent rehabilitation for the dam and outlet facilities. The second part of the tour will focus on the Gila River and Tres Rios Restoration areas and improvements being made to promote natural floodplain management and habitat restoration.
The high ground water table in the river creates different challenges. On route to these features, participants will learn about geomorphology and desert hydrology, partial dam replacement basin design for fissures, river vegetation rehabilitation, and locations for native vegetation replacement.
Stops will occur along the Gila and Salt River as time allows on the route back to the Convention Center. Participants will use decision support tools and learn about how they can be used in the CRS planning process so they achieve the most economic and ecological benefit. Attendees will need to bring a lap top to participate in a hands-on exercises.
The Base Level Engineering BLE approach leverages high-resolution topography and generates broad flood risk assessments using large scale automated engineering methodologies, instead of targeting individual stream reaches within a community, county or watershed.
Using current technologies, multiple watersheds or watersheds with large land areas can be analyzed at a more efficient rate to produce water-surface elevations and site-specific hazard data replacing outdated flood studies shown in existing Flood Insurance Rate Maps. All flood prone areas analyzed within a watershed will end up with an engineering model calculating multiple flood recurrence intervals and defining floodplains with elevation grids using high-resolution topography.
The benefits of sharing provides stakeholders at all levels the data and tools to make informed decisions to reduce future flood losses. This data availability opens a broad conversation, initiating a longer term communication with communities related to risk communication, potential projects for data generation, enhancing local floodplain management activities, higher standards, mitigation project identification, and assessment and prioritization of flood risk reduction opportunities.
This is where you come in! This workshop will immerse participants in interactive sessions to provide basic understanding of the Base Level Engineering concepts, engage participants in identifying opportunities where data from Base Level Engineering assessments may lead to deeper conversations related to community planning, flood hazard identification, engineering model refinement opportunities, mitigation, recovery and risk reduction planning, identification and determination of an estimated Base Flood Elevation at a property or structure location.
At the close of the workshop participants will be provided an opportunity to gain their BLE Ambassador badge, expanding the network of professionals that can support communities in their review and use of Base Level Engineering data to enhance their local floodplain management activities.
This course identifies basic rating elements including compliance and rating elements for enclosures. Resources for outreach and updates will be identified and discussed as well as a brief overview of changes to flood insurance due to the and NFIP Reform bills.Abstract.
This document provides a review and analysis of guidelines and articles relating to the needs of older people with Web accessibility needs due to ageing, and compares these with the needs of people with disabilities as already addressed in WAI guidelines.
