Could B.C.’s catastrophic infrastructure damage been mitigated?

Wicked winds pummelled B.C., coupled with a deluge of rain that caused catastrophic mudslides and “atmospheric rivers” that wiped away bridges, roadways and in some cases submerged villages.

Wastewater treatment plants buckled and some completely failed, while other critical infrastructure was put at risk.

While the storm itself is being called an extremely rare event, could the devastation to the province’s critical infrastructure been mitigated?

The Journal of Commerce has compiled several stories that were written before the latest weather event, where experts warned of the severe impacts of climate change and provided suggestions on ways to help infrastructure withstand future devastating climate events.
