Flood Education Workshop for Homeowners and Business Owners

Are you a homeowner or a business owner in Allegheny County? Have you been asking yourself: How do I protect my house from flooding? What can I do to get back into my house after it has flooded? What kind of help is available if I can't do it on my own?

Join the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Allegheny County Conservation District, PA Dept. of Environmental Protection, PA Emergency Management Agency, and Federal Emergency Management Agency for a workshop to learn how to prepare, mitigate and recover from flooding, gain awareness of available resources for homeowners or business owners and find other important information to empower yourself and the people you care about before and after a flood. Learn to be a better prepared and flood-resilient community.
