EPA Rain Ready Initiative Chicago Climate Change Flood Control

The Center for Neighborhood Technology, a Chicago-based nonprofit with expertise in water management and urban flooding, launched a new resource to help individuals, businesses and communities find solutions to the problem of too much or too little water. The Rain Ready Initiative offers a suite of policies and practices to help residents, communities and states plan for weather events associated with climate change. Rain Ready helps municipal and state leaders approach the challenges of flooding, water shortage and/or water pollution in customized and cost-effective ways. Although each state differs in weather, geography, urban development and population, states can draw from a broad set of actions to help communities protect themselves now and reduce risks in the future.
