Private flood mitigation

Blog_Privatefloodmitigation.jpgTo continue efforts to understand and help manage flooding in The
Village of Riverside the history of permits for flood mitigation devices
for residential properties were extracted from The Village’s permitting
system. Using the Geographic Information System (GIS) the locations of
the private property mitigation permits were mapped. Combining this
information with other flood related data such as backyard ponding
reports, improved surfaces, contours, and sewer infrastructure that The
Village has been accumulating and mapping gives a more detailed picture
of all factors involved in the ongoing flood mitigation efforts and
provides for more effective solutions.​
