The American Water Resources Association (AWRA) Policy Committee released the second volume of their report, “Proactive Flood and Drought Management”. As in Volume I, Volume II presents detailed case studies of efforts on local and regional scales to prepare for and mitigate the impacts of flooding and drought.

Volume II of the report expands the coverage to 11 states, with new case studies from Fort Collins, CO; Lititz and the Susquehanna River communities, PA; Hillsborough River, FL; Central Valley, CA; and statewide drought response in California.

By providing a focused look at community- to state-scale needs and responses, this new report provides a wealth of ideas and information about strategies and resources that can be applied to flood and drought management across the country and further afield.

Electronic copies of Volume I (2013) and Volume II (2016) can be obtained for free at the AWRA website.
