1 Bergen County, NJ Coordination Call Flood Insurance Study FEMA Region II Mitigation Division June 28, :00-10:30

2 Purpose Risk MAP Vision: Through collaboration with State, Tribal, and local entities, Risk MAP will deliver quality data that increases public awareness and leads to action that reduces risk to life and property Purpose of this Coordination Call: To establish the awareness and understanding in the ongoing efforts to update Community’s flood risk analysis and mapping (ie. FIS and FIRM). Who is Involved: Federal/State/Local/Mapping Partners Local – Bergen County & Communities State – NJDEP Supervising Engineer, Joseph Ruggeri, P.E., CFM Federal – FEMA, Region II Project Manager; Paul K. Weberg, PE Flood Insurance Specialist; Kim Rizzo Communications/Outreach Support; Adie Koby Technical Assistance; Alan Springett Current Study Mapping Partner: RAMPP – Robyn Boyd, project manager Future Study Mapping Partner: Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP): NJDEP

3 Purpose WHY: maintain an up-to-date and accurate flood risk analysis and delineation for local decision makers in flood risk management. This SUCCESS of this effort and outcome relies on the active participation of EACH COMMUNITY

4 Objective Overview of current Risk MAP project status of Bergen County Future projects and next steps Questions & Feedback from the communities affected (Passaic and Saddle Rivers, Ho-Ho-Kus Brook, Ramsey Brook)

5 Risk MAP Program Overview Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) is a new FEMA program that provides communities with flood information and tools they can use to enhance their mitigation plans and better protect their citizens The Risk MAP program aims to achieve these goals through new and updated strategies and products that address:  Elevation data acquisition  Watershed study approach  Engineering and mapping  Risk assessment, mitigation planning support  Risk communications

10 Project Team ◦Risk Assessment, Mapping, and Planning Partners (RAMPP), a joint venture of Dewberry, URS, and ESP ◦Key team member: Sun Engineers Tasks -New Detailed Hydrology & Hydraulics (H&H) -FIS Report Production -DFIRM panel and database production -Preliminary DFIRM Production and Distribution Current Bergen County Study – Overview

11 Current Bergen County Study - Scope Incorporation of approximately 35 miles of detailed analysis for three streams and 14 miles for the Passaic River ◦The 35 miles mentioned were scoped to be incorporated into the DFIRM from a study that was conducted in 2006 Converts flood hazard data from the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88) in only affected panels – remaining panels will be converted in the near future under the NJDEP CTP work  NAVD 88 = NGVD
