 On July 30, 2016 there was a historic flooding event in Ellicott City, Maryland.  There was a lot of effort put into emergency response and reconstruction right after the event and now planning efforts are underway for rebuilding a resilient Ellicott City. Several hundred suggestions have been received for options to move forward. These suggestions include stormwater specific as well as overarching economic and historical proposals. A brief recap of the July 30 event as well as an overview of the post-storm efforts will be discussed
