1 North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program Cooperating Technical State

2 Strategy 1 - Establishment of a statewide program to acquire, process and disseminate current, accurate, and detailed elevation data, flood hazard studies, reports, and maps (hard copy and digital). Strategy 2 - Establishment of North Carolina as a Cooperating Technical State (CTS) through the FEMA Cooperating Technical Partners Program. This designation would establish North Carolina as the custodian of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps. State Response / Strategies

3 New / up-to-date / improved Flood Insurance Rate Maps:  Study on a Basin by Basin  Issued on a Countywide Basis New DFIRMs (new H&H studies) for all North Carolina by FY 2007-08 New detailed, accurate elevation data Reduction of time needed for post-preliminary review and appeals process for new FIRM maps (6 months) Better notification and dissemination of information about new and revised maps Program Objectives and Deliverables

4 On-going program for updating and maintaining FIRMs Better equipped and informed post-event mitigation activities as a result of updated flood risk maps Cost-effective data sharing through the implementation and operation of an inter-operable Geographic Information System Internet web application providing cost-effective upload, download, management, and dissemination of digital data and maps (24 x 7 / free access) Implement a real-time flood inundation and forecast mapping system (flood warning) Program Objectives and Deliverables - continued

5 Floodplain Mapping - Phases Phase I—blue (December 2003) Phase II—gold (December 2004) Phase III—green (December 2006)

6 Floodplain Mapping – 1985 Jacksonville, NC FBFM

7 Key Components of the New Maps - Production Digital FIRM = Flood Hazard Data Base Data + Topography +

8 Floodplain Mapping – Old Map vs. New Map

9 Leverage efficient and effective technology for more efficient digital / map modernization for new maps / future updates (GIS, LIDAR, etc.) Collect complete elevation data coverage in North Carolina Study as many miles of stream as need and possible (1 sq. mile basin threshold / efficient limited-detail approach) Requirement for hard copy (snapshot) and digital (living) version – different purposes, valued products for each Emphasize / Establish digital data sharing with counties / municipalities Leverage program deliverables to defray the overall cost and further implement other (e.g. flood warning) Strong, upfront community involvement and buy-in Documentation is Required (Business Rules and Procedures) No new wheels – Share everything / Co-opetition Programmatic / Operations - Priniciples

10 Data Acquisition – Public vs. Private Assessment / scoping of map needs (State of NC / NC Communities) Digital base maps (State of NC / NC Communities) Acquisition of elevation data (RFQ) Engineering studies (RFQ) Digital flood insurance rate maps (RFQ) Quality assurance/quality control (Geodetic Survey / 3 rd Party) Information technology architectural design and implementation (RFQ) Real Time Flood Forecasting and Inundation Mapping (State of NC / FEMA / USGS / NWS)

11 NCFPMP has established a distributed program structure utilizing multiple agencies as leads: –NCFPMP – Overall program/policy development and management, contractual management, operations management, H&H analysis, scoping, outreach, post-preliminary –NCGS – (lead partner) Elevation acquisition, elevation quality control (3 rd party, independent surveyors –NC CGIA – (lead partner) Base map acquisition / review, DFIRM review, IT design and implementation –FEMA – Overall CTP partner, concurrence on policy and maps, post- preliminary (regulatory responsibilities), financial support –Dewberry – H&H concurrence review, DFIRM and DFIRM database concurrence review, community mapping needs / scoping support, program and policy support –CTS Committee – policy / program direction (advisory), program / product feedback, inter-agency coordination and collaboration Current Program / Operations - Structure

12 NCFPMP has established a distributed QA / QC program structure utilizing multiple agencies as leads: QA / QC for elevation data – NCFPMP / NCGS / 3 rd party surveyors / FEMA-Dewberry QA / QC for DFIRM panels, database, reports – NCFPMP, CGIA, FEMA-Dewberry QA / QC for Hydraulic & Hydrologic studies - NCFPMP, FEMA, and Dewberry QA / QC for Information Technology Infrastructure – NCFPMP, CGIA, IRMC, FEMA Current Program / Operations – QA / QC

13 August 15, 2000, North Carolina General Assembly reallocates $23.2 million from Hurricane Floyd Reserve to Floodplain Mapping – Phase I September 15, 2000, State of North Carolina and FEMA signed MOA transferring primary responsibility for NC FIRMs to North Carolina October 2000, North Carolina holds first CTS Committee Meeting November 2000, qualified two prime firms (WSC and G&O) to do the elevation acquisition, engineering and surveying, DFIRM generation, IT design and implementation January 2001, issued first delivery orders to both firms for elevation acquisition for Phase I area CTS Program Steps / Milestones

14 September 2001, General Assembly transferred NCFPMP from OSBPM to CCPS, sending NC CGIA and NCGS to DENR November 2001, North Carolina General Assembly reallocates (through legislation) $ 9.0 million from Hurricane Floyd Reserve to Hurricane Floyd Reserve – Phase I and II January 2002, OSBM puts hold on all state funds due to budget shortfall January 15, 2002, Onslow County maps are submitted to community (post-preliminary process) April 30, 2002, North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Information System (NCFMIS) is certified by IRMC and goes live on the web September 2002, National Weather Service Flood Warning Grant approved CTS Program Steps / Milestones

15 October 2002, North Carolina General Assembly reallocates (through Appropriation Bill) $ 9.0 million from Hurricane Floyd Reserve to Hurricane Floyd Reserve – “To be used to leverage / maximize federal and state funds to continue the Floodplain Mapping Program” November 2002, Issue Delivery Order for Scoping Tool / Application to be used in Phase II March 2003, Qualified two additional Prime Engineering Firms (AMEC and Arcadis) December 2003, Submitted Draft State Map Modernization Business Plan (2004-09) CTS Program Steps / Milestones
