Flood Risk Mitigation and Green Infrastructure Solutions to Bolster Climate Resilience in Keweenaw Bay

Baraga, Michigan

A multidisciplinary team led by Climate Resilience Consulting and One Architecture and Urbanism recently commissioned ECT on behalf of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC). The team is assessing risks associated with climate change and coastal dynamics, as well as threats due to legacy contamination that could impact critical habitats and natural systems.

Based on EPA and Tribe background data, ECT will synthesize future risks such as fluctuating lake levels, intense wave and wind events, and flooding. The results will inform the selection of sites for green infrastructure development and proposed conceptual designs

Employing a participatory design process, the team will work closely with Tribal leadership to engage directly with knowledge holders integrating western science, traditional and local knowledge, stakeholder experiences, and cultural values into aspects of this project.

Specifically, the project team will provide the following services to bolster the KBIC’s climate resilience:

  • Develop flood risk mitigation and green infrastructure interventions – from the earliest states of project identification through design, implementation, and monitoring
  • Synthesize data, reports, and stakeholder inputs to deliver context-sensitive and responsive design solutions
  • Create participatory design processes that leverage charrettes and partnership
  • Advance the implementation of green infrastructure, nature restoration, and addressing legacy contamination through Nature-based Solutions
