Flooding and Mudslides in B.C.

What can we learn from the 1/500 year major storm B.C. just had? What kinds of future mitigation measures can help accommodate greater water volumes to prevent mass destruction?
Civil engineers are no longer looking at historical data to build subdivisions, roads, culverts, parking lots, etc. Future modelling would suggest that larger culverts and higher bridges decks would help accommodate larger water volumes. Shallower slopes, drainage blankets and permeable materials that control seepage will help control waterlogged hills.
