Every additional tenth of a degree makes extreme weather, sea level rise, and climate impacts on nature and people worse. Resilient design is becoming an imperative
Clark Nexsen collaborated with Old Dominion University (ODU) to evaluate and report on the recommendations to help ensure the university is safe from flooding.
