January 24 – Water & Post Hurricane Irma



January 24 - Water & Post Hurricane Irma

Tiger Bay Club of Southwest Florida to host members of the South Florida Water Management District for a post-Hurricane Irma discussion at January 24 Luncheon

Hurricane Irma left a trail of destruction – from home damages, fallen trees, debris and more. While the City took quick action to clean up the streets and provide support for many in need, parts of the County were still under water for days and weeks after Hurricane Irma.  While the storm surge provided to be a lesser concern than anticipated, flooding and poor drainage issues kept people secluded to their homes, unable to drive the streets in their neighborhood.

Following Hurricane Irma, questions still remain:

  • Was flooding all Irma related or does Lee County have drainage issues?
  • Just how much water did we receive?
  • Why does water sit on the roads, swales and lakes following a rainstorm or hurricane rather than just being pumped off?
  • Were we prepared for the effect of Hurricane Irma?

Join us on January 24 as we address post-Hurricane Irma water concerns, and hear directly from a panel of engineering experts and members of the South Florida Water Management District.
