As extreme weather conditions become more commonplace, it has become vital to build communities that have the tools, resources, and infrastructure to handle the higher frequency of storms. A common concern for many of these localities is the increase in extreme flooding that they have experienced recently. Frequent flooding has caused added stress to drainage systems, further damage to infrastructure, and increased risk of loss of human life. The lack of flood resilience has left homeowners increasingly anxious and angry about recurring residential flooding.

The Town of Christiansburg is one of the many communities in Virginia that has experienced a rise in flooding over the years. Because the volume of improvement projects necessary to take care of the impacts of this flooding exceeds the Town’s funds, they applied for and received a Community Flood Preparedness Fund (CFPF) grant for building flood preparedness. Through this grant, they are developing a Flood Resiliency Plan. This report looks at the progress Christiansburg is making towards developing this plan and the impact it is having on the community.
