BB2C-43 Problem Scenario: #43 Rainfall and Flooding

Problem Description

You have recently moved to a new area in Southeastern Ohio. As a new community member, you were encouraged to attend a meeting at the Local Environmental Governing Board when a colleague learned of your interest in improving the interactions between Humans and the Environment in order to improve life quality for the community members. At the meeting, you become aware of increasing issues due to rainfall and flooding. Many of the issues include erosion of the land near the rivers, deterioration of local landmarks, and house and property damage for the residents. Using what you have learned about GIS Systems and how water positively and negatively interacts with the humans around it, develop on action plan of steps to address this issue for your new community.
