March 13 Flood Control Workshop

Wellington invites the public to attend a workshop on the “Community’s Role in Flood Control” on Friday, March 13 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd).

The workshop is designed for residents, property managers and community board members who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of their drainage system.

Attendees will gain an understanding of the functions of stormwater management and the role that residential communities play in flood control. They will also learn about and be able to identify the components of the drainage system, as well as understand basic maintenance techniques and methods used to prevent localized flooding.

Attendees will hear from the South Florida Water Management District’s Principal Regional Representative Laura Corry, as well as Wellington flood control and emergency operations officials.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Register on Eventbrite at “Village of Wellington’s Flood Prevention Seminar.” Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available for those who need them.
