USACE Hosts Meramec Flood Risk Reduction Workshops

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District, in partnership with the St. Louis County Council and the City of Eureka will host two public workshops on Meramec Flood Risk Reduction in the following weeks.

The meetings will include presentations from the National Nonstructural Flood Proofing Committee highlighting information on flood risk and U.S. trends in flooding, nonstructural flood proofing techniques, and potential resources for managing flood risk.

USACE and Nonstructural Flood Proofing Committee experts will be available for questions leading up to and following formal presentations.

Homes, businesses and infrastructure in the Lower Meramec basin have been significantly impacted by two recent floods of record,” said Shawn Sullivan, Strategic Planning coordinator for the St. Louis District.

“This workshop will provide a great opportunity for Lower Meramec basin stakeholders to learn more about practical flood risk reduction solutions.” 

The workshops will take place on Wednesday, November 1, at Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center in Kirkwood, Mo., from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. and Thursday, November 2, at the Eureka Fire District Training Center in Pacific, Mo., 63069, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.
