Door County Flooding Seminar To Be Held January 16, 2020

Door County Flood Seminar

Door County Emergency Management and Communications will be hosting a seminar geared towards Door County property owners and local decision makers regarding the potential for high lake levels, coastal erosion, and flooding in the spring of 2020 and best practices for dealing with such events.

This seminar will feature speakers from many agencies including Door County Emergency Management and Communications, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), United States Army Corps of Engineers, and UW Sea Grant Institute. Collectively, these speakers will present information on the current flooding situation and forecast models as well as information related to preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation efforts related to flooding issues. A panel style question and answer session will immediately follow the presentations where questions will be taken from the audience.

In addition to the speakers noted above, a variety of personnel from the Door County Land Use Services Department, DNR, and National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration will be staffing information booths to answer questions and provide resources.

This seminar is open to the public, but space is limited and will be on a first come first serve basis.
