Jessica Lassetter, Transportation and Environmental Services Stormwater expert, will discuss what the city is doing and what you can do to respond to climate change flooding and protect your property.
Shifting weather patterns due to climate change has increased the frequency and severity of storms in Alexandria. While the City pursues projects to actively manage stormwater, this presentation will cover several topics that focus on helping you to protect your property from future storm events while saving you money.
This session will cover the City’s backflow preventor program cost-share program, the Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (VCAP), and ways to reduce your Stormwater Utility fee, as well as floodproofing, flood insurance, safety, understanding your property’s water flow, etc.
