Resolving "Water Wars": Use of Mediation and Collaboration in Stormwater Conflicts

OnDemand Webinar (79 minutes)

Identify resources that you will need in order to effectively manage water conflicts more successfully.Many water/stormwater managers and professionals experience both unnecessary and unavoidable water conflicts. Often, they do not recognize the catalysts for the conflict nor the opportunities to avoid and better manage those water conflicts. One growing source of conflict is our changing weather patterns and unsustainable development. This topic will relate how to recognize the source of stormwater conflicts before they evolve into crisis proportions, provide insight through case studies from many levels of our society, and relate paths to take and tools to use that help you rise above conflict for more manageable and desired outcomes.
