Join us at the recently renovated Lafayette Public Library Main Branch for our first Lafayette convening as we work to build the Louisiana water economy. Share the news!
- What is our shared vision for a thriving Louisiana?
- How do we address the "doing what we've always done" paradigm?
- Who are the leaders in integrated water management in Louisiana?
- Long-term versus short-term: how do we balance immediate needs with the need for longer-term resilience?
If there is one lesson we have learned about floods, it is that records are made to be broken. So in addition to planning for the last flood, we need to anticipate higher water than our current benchmarks. Craig E. Colten, LSU, Aug. 22, 2016
