Wellington invites the public to attend The Community’s Role in Flood Control Workshop on Friday, March 13, 2020 beginning at 9:00 AM at the Wellington Community Center (12150 Forest Hill Boulevard).

In preparation for the upcoming 2020 hurricane season, Wellington is working to ensure that everyone is prepared.  The workshop is designed for residents, property managers, and community board members who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of their drainage system.

Attendees will gain an understanding of the functions of stormwater management and the role that residential communities play in flood control.  They will also learn about and be able to identify the components of the drainage system, as well as understand basic maintenance techniques and methods used to prevent localized flooding.

Attendees will hear from South Florida Water Management District’s Principal Regional Representative, Laura Corry, as well as Wellington Flood Control & Emergency Operations Officials.

This event is FREE and open to the public, but space is limited.  Register on Eventbrite today at Village of Wellington’s Flood Prevention Seminar.  

For those needing Community Association Management Continuing Education Units (CEU’s), two (2) hours are available for those attending the workshop.
