Another 200 Year Flood?
What Missouri Can Do to Stop Repeated Flooding


Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences

Moderated by: Cynthia Wichelman, M.D.


The recent succession of record floods in Missouri demands explanation and a considered regional response. Professor Bob Criss will use examples from local watersheds—both large and small—to explain why severe flooding has become frequent and made official flood risk estimates obsolete. He will suggest several strategies that can reduce flood risk while benefiting both the economy and the environment.
