The event, which was championed by Kentucky and Ohio Silver Jackets teams and planned by the Huntington District, brought together local, state and federal stakeholders to discuss and prioritize flooding hazards on a basin level. Attendees heard presentations from experts in various FRM subjects such as hyper resolution flood modeling and using trees in stormwater management.
