  • 2:00pm - 3:30pm

William F. (Bill) Hunt, III, William Neal Reynolds Professor & Extension Specialist, Biological & Agricultural Engineering, North Carolina State University

Hurricane Florence dumped as much as three feet of water on parts of southeastern North Carolina. This occurred only one year after massive flooding in Houston, Texas. Epic rainfall events, while still “epic,” may no longer be considered infrequent. What does this mean for engineering design standards? What storms should we consider? Where is it OK to develop? What guidance does the engineering code of conduct provide? Insights to these questions and more are the focus of “So It Rained 2 Feet — Now What?”
