What is this conference?

This is the fourth event of the Dam & Levee Resilience series, a collaborative event between the Federal Government, State and Local Governments, Regional Agencies, and the private sector. Stakeholders of all kinds will be coming together in person to foster cross-sector collaboration regarding the risks, challenges, and policy updates facing our aging infrastructure. The safety and security of dams and levees is paramount; please join us as we discuss the concerns and challenges associated with maintaining these critical structures.
