Mr. Brack Bentley, former Town Manager, Vienna and Front Royal, Virginia put the fundamental water problem for public managers this way: “Water - there’s either too much, or not enough, and in the wrong place.” This panel addresses collaborative approaches used for low-lying/sea-level communities that manage both storm water drainage and external storm surge intrusion. Government, the private sector and the research community need to work side by side to develop new technologies, strategies and policies that meet today’s water challenges, utilizing all relevant experience to deal with extreme weather events. Case studies at the international, national and regional levels will be presented, including lessons from the Dutch Delta Programme as are being applied in New Orleans and Florida. Work is underway at both the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments regional scale and that of the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, all within the Mid-Atlantic’s Chesapeake Bay watershed which is under influence of the Atlantic Ocean and its seasonal storms.

The Office of the Secretary of Transportation is responsible for eight agencies effecting transportation in the commonwealth. The Virginia Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment was created in 2002 to encourage the coordination of multimodal and intermodal planning across these various transportation modes. A 2035 VTrans policy plan was developed through a multimodal Transportation Working Group with representatives from the Transportation Secretariat. In addition, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) developed the 2035 Virginia Surface Transportation Plan (VSTP), which provides long-term multimodal transportation suggestions for the commonwealth. The plan provides information for potential long-term project development and investment based on the goals identified in VTrans2035, Virginia’s statewide multimodal transportation policy plan. The Surface Transportation Plan received the APA Virginia Chapter – 2011 State Planning Innovation Award. Included in the VSTP are recommendations from 20 Regional Rural Long Range Plans that identify needs based upon goals and objectives established by each region using a unique process with local stakeholders.
