riparian rap

St. Louis flood forum Nov. 11.

St. Louis University is hosting a flood forum on November 11. A scientific meeting will run most of the day, followed by a public forum that night. Two of my favorite river scientists, Rip Sparks and Nicholas Pinter, will be presenting. This is a critical issue for the St. Louis, Missouri area and it’s good to see it pushed into the public eye as the memory of last summer’s floods dims.

Panel participants are to be announced. I don’t yet see any Army Corps people, and imagine the organizers are working to get them involved.
