Here's a link to an informative article discussing the need for a comprehensive plan on the
Missouri River Flooding
The last paragraph summarizes the article saying:
In the end, …people must find better ways to cope with natural disasters, rather than assuming that they can prevent damage from them. "We ought to proceed with the idea of how can we make ourselves less prone to risk, rather than: What are we going to do to stop Nature?”
In other words, try as we might to control Nature, we cannot stop it. There will always be some stormwater runoff event that humans cannot control.
How can our community improve its efforts to minimize risk from storm water runoff events? Comments welcome.
