An open house for those who live and play in this superior watershed.

Minnesota Sea Grant is hosting an open house so that the public can learn about the economics of flood impacts and green infrastructure strategies to help reduce those impacts.

The open house comes at the end of a yearlong study conducted by NOAA's Coastal Services Center in cooperation with the City of Duluth, Minn. The study focuses on the city's Chester Creek Watershed and includes economic assessments of flood impacts and how green infrastructure could reduce flood losses. The open house includes presentations by project partners from Minnesota and South Carolina. It also involves hands-on activities and storyboards relating to:

  • The damage a flood can cause
  • Land use and runoff
  • Future precipitation and land use. Why is runoff changing?
  • What is "Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development"?
  • How can green infrastructure improve the Chester Creek Watershed?
  • What you can do to prepare for the next flood
