Resilience is not just a water quantity or quality issue; it is the scientific and societal challenge of our time.  This full-day seminar will provide an overview of climate change, outline the scope of the journey to resilience, discuss funding solutions, review action plans, and highlight lessons learned. Join us as we explore this complex, time consuming, expensive, interdisciplinary, and political issue from a statewide perspective, with a special emphasis on issues relevant to stormwater professionals.
