ICYMI: Mobile releases Resilience Assessment and announces public planning meeting

MOBILE, ALA. (Jan. 9, 2024) – After more than a year working alongside The Water Institute and other local partners, the City of Mobile has released its first-ever Resilience Assessment.

From the city's release:

This comprehensive document examines Mobile's existing infrastructure, population and government operations. The data collected shows where Mobile has improved over the years and where we still have work to do. The goal is to ensure that all Mobilians are prepared for events that can shape our future, like severe storms, environmental changes, and shifting economic and social conditions.

"The Water Institute was honored to work with the city and all of our partners on the Resilience Assessment, a science-based approach that incorporates the input of stakeholders and the public," said Beaux Jones, president and CEO of The Water Institute. "Recognizing key events that have shaped the city's history and analyzing how the city has been working to address these challenges provides a critical foundation for developing an actionable resilience plan for the future.""
