Levee Lab

Summary

Typical flood protection infrastructure is expanded and diversified to accomplish long-standing goals of the community, such as a recreational greenway, along with a series of designed ecologies, applied materials research, and pilots that test new techniques for climate adaptation on industrial waterfronts. Collectively, these projects can contribute to a new regulatory framework and demonstrate an intelligent approach to scaling up climate adaptation. The lab employs local workers and engages academic agency to contribute to the broader implementation of flood protection across the region.
