Resilient Volusia County 

Volusia County, through collaboration and partnerships with the ECFRPC, UF Sea Grant, and Stetson, has been working for over 5 years in assessing and planning for vulnerabilities related to flooding, surge, and sea-level rise. 

 

Funding to support these projects has been made available through Sea Grant and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. 

 

This page serves as a resource for RESILIENT VOLUSIA plans and processes developed over the years of collaboration. 

Below you will find a variety of documents, presentations, and graphics developed for the RESILIENT VOLUSIA efforts.
