One Year After the Flood: Lessons Learned

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Throughout the past week, WRNI has brought you a series of in depth reports on last Spring's devastating floods. This morning, we conclude the series with a discussion of the primary culprit in the story: the Pawtuxet River.

Contributing factors, state response, and areas of improvement are just some of the topics that a Brown University professor and his students looked into for a special report.

WRNI's Flo Jonic sat down with Brown professor Timmons Roberts to talk about the study.
