The mission of the RI-CHAMP project is to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the hazards and impacts caused by extreme storms. Our primary objective is to provide emergency managers and stakeholders in Southern New England with advanced modeling, analysis, and tools, aiming to enhance resiliency in the region. Our approach is designed to facilitate the evaluation of the cascading consequences that arise from extreme weather events and the potential impacts on critical infrastructure, including wastewater treatment facilities.
