Extension, DNR educate communities on flooding

Flooding in Iowa

Flooding in Iowa” offers a close look at floodplains, flood risks and ways to mitigate possible future losses from flooding. The web-based educational videos are suitable for local officials as well as the general public. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources contracted with ISU Extension and Outreach to develop the videos.

Extension planning and development specialist Gary Taylor pulled together a diverse team of ISU College of Design students from community and regional planning, architecture, landscape architecture and biological/pre-medical illustration for the project. The IDNR Floodplain Management Division provided guidance and expertise in developing the content.
