It will provide an overview of a project aimed at helping to increase the resiliency of small businesses in New York to flooding and mitigate impacts from future storm surges. Their presentation will discuss storm surge resiliency audits at businesses throughout the city, design and installation of site-specific floodproofing technologies, and an internet-connected resiliency dashboard capable of providing real-time visualization of flood risks and recommended site-specific flood risk mitigation actions.

The presentation will also provide an overview of other tools available for intelligent control of infrastructure, including where innovative real-time controls have been used to retrofit existing infrastructure to minimize flooding risk.
