RiverSmart Communities Report Available
The RiverSmart Communities program at UMass Amherst has released a report "Supporting New England Communities to Become RiverSmart: Policies and Programs That Can Help New England Towns Thrive Despite River Floods." The result of work with numerous partners in MA and VT, the report combines social and river science, institutional and policy research, and community outreach to research and address river floods in New England.
Its purpose is to facilitate river management that can restore the environmental integrity of rivers while ensuring that New England communities thrive in a world where floods naturally occur. The report is available here.
