Event Presenter(s)


Jonathan Welke, P.Eng., has nearly 20 years of experience working both in consulting and local government focussing on long-term infrastructure planning in the BC Interior. He leans on his previous local government experience to provide robust, yet simple, solutions to complex problems for municipalities. Jonathan specializes in hydraulics and is skilled in interpreting model results to develop practical, real-world solutions. Mr. Welke is an advocate for adaption to climate change and uses risk-based principles to guide local governments on infrastructure investment that will not only work now, but well into the future.

About the Event


This presentation delves into the recent flooding events in Princeton and Cache Creek, shedding light on the profound impact of climate change on these communities. Faced with the urgency of adapting to increased flood risk, decision-making processes in these communities have undergone significant shifts. Come learn of the complex challenges these communities are grappling with and how climate change is shaping their future. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore advances in climate change methodologies and gain insights into the application of 2D modeling techniques to quantify flood risks. Learn how these local governments are bridging the gap between science and engineering to build a more robust and resilient community.

Appetizers will be served.
