A goal of the 2016 ‘Raise the Grade’ Upper Mississippi River Conference is being addressed in the 2018 conference – "Begin a comprehensive watershed planning process for the basin, which would engage regional planners and flood plain managers in a planning process that links floodplain and watershed management to better plan infrastructure, development, and natural resource management in the region with the goal of improving connections to natural floodplains, and minimizing at-risk development." The overall 2018 conference theme, “Our Watershed – Working Together for Healthy Waters and Flood-resilient Communities” is aimed at this goal, and will feature a workshop specifically designed to bring together interested stakeholders to form a flood resiliency alliance for the greater Quad Cities area and surrounding watersheds.
