It's Time to Make U.S. Infrastructure Flood-Ready

With record-breaking storms, aging infrastructure, and growing support for federal reform, it's more crucial than ever to ensure the U.S. is ready to withstand flooding.

Recently, a bipartisan group of more than 250 elected officials signed the Flood-Ready Infrastructure Statement of Principles, which encourages the federal government to improve building requirements, enhance the use of natural defenses, and reduce unsustainable development in risky areas.

In this video, 4 signees—Mayor Bill Saffo (Wilmington, NC), Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome (Baton Rouge, LA), Mayor Wade Troxell (Fort Collins, CO), and Mayor Sly James (Kansas City, MO)—break down how we can make our infrastructure more flood-ready.
