Capacities Identification Workshops
As part of the development of Estuario’s Hazard Mitigation Plan for the communities of the San Juan Bay Estuary Watershed, a new series of workshops begins Tuesday, September 7, 2021. As the name implies, the Capacities Identification Workshops focus on the identification and documentation of the abilities, resources, attributes and strengths that help communities better manage and face natural disasters.
The workshops have been divided by municipality, and serve the communities of Bayamón, Canóvanas, Carolina, Cataño, Guaynabo, Loíza, San Juan, Toa Baja and Trujillo Alto. Members of the public interested in taking part in Estuario’s Hazard Mitigation Plan development can register through https://estuario.org/capacidades/.

Preparing for the Hurricane Season
We’re in the midst of the Atlantic hurricane season. As part of hazard mitigation efforts, Estuario is enacting a season-wide informative campaign, centered in the promotion of Estuario’s Virtual Resilent Community Hub. The hub continues to be updated with essential information to the public regarding preparation and hazard mitigation management.
