Flood Ready Germantown Survey
Please share your input!

GreenTreks Network is partnering with local watershed groups, City agencies, and area nonprofits to provide family, friends, and neighbors with solutions to the flooding which affects our community again and again.

By completing this simple 3-minute survey, you’ll be giving important feedback to the organizations that can help solve this problem -- and you’ll receive easy-to-act-on materials to help minimize the impact on your property when it rains.

Thanks for doing your part and passing the word.
About Flood Ready Germantown

The goal of this project is to raise awareness of the increasing flood threats facing Germantown residents, the connection to climate change, and ways local residents can better prepare for future flooding events.

Along with creating a series of short videos explaining the issue and sharing stories from community members who have been impacted by flooding, the goal is to connect Germantown's most at-risk residents with the information and resources that empower them to protect their property and family's health. The materials will be broadly disseminated by partners through social media networks, websites, e-newsletters, and at community events.
