Hazard Communication and Stakeholder Outreach

Effective communication of the risks associated with hazards, such as flooding, to facility owners and operators, regulatory agencies, and the public, can be challenging. 

It often requires the presentation of complex data and multiple mitigation alternatives, each with its own level of risk.  To illustrate the predicted performance of different mitigation measures, GZA uses three-dimensional visualization tools based on software such as the CTech Environmental Visualization System (EVS)™and ArcGIS™ software.  GZA also facilitates stakeholder outreach and consensus building ranging from the boardroom to public meetings.
