C100 Planning For Flooding In Washington (Draft)

Beth Purcell, et al.

The  District government needs to act now to prevent flooding.  The risk of floods in Washington is increasing and threatens the city.  The District government should respond now to the threat of 100-year and 500-year floods.  We urge the District government to get in front of the problem, adopt the management principle of no adverse impact from flooding, and create a floodplain management plan for all floodplains in the city.
