The firm provides tools for informed flood-risk decision-making. Prior to launching CoastalRisk, Mr. Slap was a nationally-recognized environmental attorney and law professor.

His Clean Water Act citizen lawsuits brought billions of dollars of reinvestment in wastewater treatment plants and created tens of thousands of new construction jobs.
