We have been reminded of the challenges we face as communities concerning urban flooding and what should be done for mitigating stormwater overflows. Research has suggested floods are the most frequent of all natural disasters and the number of flood events is rising rapidly. In this Webinar, we will discuss available innovative technologies and business models which have helped cities minimize and recover from flood losses. Our key highlights for this discussion will be:
Real-life examples of products, services, and solutions Xylem offers as part of our contribution towards urban resilience with a focus on helping cities manage flood risk.
Partnerships developed to integrate, install, and maintain systems for measuring and transmitting information on water levels, precipitation, and discharge rates in real time, providing city managers and emergency responders with “resource intelligence” for guiding decision-making and furthermore increase upon our resilience during and after flooding events.
