Climate Change Resilience Study



The City of Moorhead received a State of Minnesota grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to study stormwater, wastewater, and community climate resilience to localized flooding during and after heavy rain events. The City used this grant to develop climate-resilient strategies – including a modeling and assessment report – to reduce risk to vulnerable community assets resulting from increased rainfall events caused by climate change.
