Collaborating for success: Mapping statewide flood vulnerability to achieve Florida’s legislative mandate

Tuesday, July 30 | 12:00 EDT, 09:00 PDT, 17.00 BST

in partnership with

The Resilient Florida Program of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection was tasked with a significant challenge: to develop a comprehensive statewide coastal and inland flood vulnerability assessment for critical infrastructure across the State of Florida within just eight months.

Join us to discover how Fathom’s US flood modeling framework, combined with local expertise from Taylor Engineering and Jones Edmunds, rapidly developed a bespoke fully 2D statewide flood model that covered coastal, pluvial, and fluvial flood risk under both current and future climate scenarios.

To meet these requirements, Taylor Engineering partnered with Fathom and Jones Edmunds to complete a groundbreaking statewide flood risk analysis. The team leveraged Fathom’s existing flood modeling framework combined with Taylor Engineering and Jones Edmunds local expertise to rapidly develop a bespoke fully 2D statewide flood model that covered coastal, pluvial, and fluvial flood risk under both current and future climate scenarios. 

The webinar will explore;

  • The reasons driving the creation of consistent and comprehensive statewide mapping with future climate scenarios.
  • The challenges encountered when developing a map of such complexity and the innovative solutions created to overcome them.
  • How Fathom’s data can supplement Base Level Engineering maps, local data and the latest LiDAR data to to fill in the data gaps across the US.
  • How to demonstrate the benefits delivered to a wide range of stakeholders. 

The project had challenges, including the short deadline and the need to create a consistent statewide flood risk model from scratch complete with future climate change scenarios. However, through effective collaboration and innovative problem-solving, the team delivered a comprehensive assessment that met all of the State’s requirements. 

This webinar will interest anyone involved in flood risk modeling, climate change adaptation, or infrastructure planning and development and associated vulnerability analysis.

Quote I’d like to thank the effort of regional flood planning groups, its members, technical consultants, the public and other agencies who have been putting in a lot of time to put together regional flood plans, essentially going to come together as the first State Flood Plan for Texas.
