Groundwater & stormwater - impacts and implications of a changing climate


Beneath our city, a hidden world awaits: Explore the secrets of groundwater and climate change! Have you ever wondered what lies beneath your feet? In many coastal cities like ours, a hidden world of shallow groundwater exists, silently influencing our infrastructure and even our daily lives. Yet, it remains largely unseen, "out of sight, out of mind." But what happens when and if our changing climate disrupts this hidden system? Join us for an eye-opening series of talks diving deep into the world of shallow groundwater, stormwater, and the looming threats of climate change. You'll discover: The surprising proximity of groundwater and its intricate connection to our urban infrastructure. How rising sea levels and changing weather patterns can impact groundwater levels, leading to potential flooding and saltwater intrusion. Innovative solutions available that can help manage groundwater challenges and enhance the sustainability and resilience of our communities. From expert speakers to real-world case studies, these talks will help us to unmask these hidden systems and encourage us to prepare for the future. Don't miss this chance to uncover the secrets of groundwater and grow awareness of how we can collaboratively work to face the challenges ahead.
