Agricultural and urban flooding
on IPR’s Talk of Iowa
(April 2013) After two major flooding events for Iowa in 1993 and 2008, and a number of significant flooding events in-between, Iowans need to ask hard questions about how we have altered our environment.
Iowa Public Radio’s “Talk of Iowa” discussed agricultural and urban flooding, looking at changes we’ve made to our landscape that has made it more prone to flooding. The program also discussed both the damage flooding can cause, and some innovative ways farmers, homeowners and city planners can prevent flooding or at least minimize the damage it can cause.
