Our waters are rising, and we’re paying the price.
Every year from 2015 to 2019, heavy rain events and coastal storms decimated South Carolina homes, businesses, schools and hospitals. Storm surge pushed salt into our drinking water. Drowned treatment plants spilled raw sewage into our rivers. South Carolinians were forced out of their homes ahead of swollen rivers spilling over their banks.
We can’t continue business as usual. In the face of higher tides, more intense rain events and flooding, as well as a changing climate, we must reduce risks and strengthen our communities. We can tackle this challenge. We can become more resilient and build a more prosperous future.
This three-part webinar series offers a range of perspectives on the rising cost of rising water and solutions to help our homes and businesses. Upcoming topics include how the insurance industry is adapting and how communities are investing in natural defenses. Join us for one, two or all three parts!
