Blum-affiliated Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Brett Sanders was recently interviewed for an article on the California regions that are at risk of flooding and how his research is identifying workable solutions to address these hazards.

The article describes three flooding risk areas for California: its coastline; the Bay Delta region, where flooding could contaminate the freshwater supply; and the coastal plain that stretches from Los Angeles into Orange County.

Professor Sanders outlines some potential strategies that California can use to prepare for rising sea levels and discusses what would be required in order for these to be successful. Read about it here in the article written by Aaron Orlowski.
