1 FEMA Update: Flood Map Modernization and Risk MAP Presented on behalf of FEMA by David I. Maurstad, PBS&J

2 2 Flood Map Modernization  Flood Map Modernization is a 5-yr $1 billion Presidential Initiative utilizing funding through FY08  Digital Flood Hazard Data and Maps for 92% of the Nation’s population  Enhanced Flood Map Quality – primarily the flood hazard boundary  Effective Program Management and Performance Measurement  Effective Partnerships with State, Local, Tribal, and National organizations as well as Other Federal Agencies  In FY10, FEMA is continuing flood mapping efforts that will extend through FY11

3 3 The Vision for Risk MAP (Mapping, Assessment, Planning) Through collaboration with State, Local, and Tribal entities, Risk MAP will deliver quality data that increases public awareness and leads to action that reduces risk to life and property

4 4 The Paradigm Shift: Map Mod to Risk MAP  Map Modernization used increasingly- available technology to increase the quality, reliability, and availability of flood hazard maps and data  It focused on digitizing maps to provide timely, accurate information to community planners Risk MAP further enhances the maps, involves communities during the assessment and planning stages, and guides and encourages them to communicate risk to their constituents

5 5 Risk MAP Alignment The Risk MAP framework aligns activities across the risk analysis lifecycle. Solution strategies provide the foundation for motivating action to reduce risk. Multi-Year Plan Vision Risk MAP will deliver quality data that increases public awareness and leads to action that reduces risk to life and property Goal 1: Data Gaps Address gaps in flood hazard data Goal 2: Awareness & Understanding Measurably increase public’s awareness & understanding Goal 3: Mitigation Planning Lead effective engagement in Mitigation Planning Goal 4: Digital Platform Provide an enhanced digital platform Goal 5: Synergize Programs Align Risk Analysis programs and develop synergies Risk MAP Program Measures Risk MAP Solution Risk Assessment Risk CommunicationMitigation Planning Support Elevation Data Acquisition Engineering and MappingWatershed Approach Prioritization

6 6 Product and Strategy Synthesis New Risk MAP Strategies will be integrated across Risk MAP products to enable achievement of the Risk MAP Vision

7 7 FY10 Flood Mapping Progress Report and Production Plan  FY10 update on flood mapping activities for Map Mod and Risk MAP  Available on FEMA website at:  mm_main.shtm mm_main.shtm

8 8 Report Highlights  The “FY10 Flood Mapping Progress Report and Production Plan” details FEMA’s progress in prioritizing and delivering modernized flood maps for areas of the United States with the greatest flood risk. The report also provides: An update on performance in the Flood Map Modernization Program. The strategy for prioritizing and initiating coastal, levee, riverine, and Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP) flood engineering and map data updates for Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP). U.S. Maps depicting map production progress, planned updates, and an appendix that lists by State and county all scheduled and completed flood map production activities.  In FY10, Risk MAP flood map studies are beginning to reflect watershed- based project planning.

9 9 FY10 Flood Map Production Funding  FEMA is utilizing the majority of $220 million in FY10 Congressional flood hazard mapping funding for direct flood map production and elevation data acquisition conducted at the regional level to support coastal, Provisionally Accredited Levee (PAL), and riverine engineering and mapping projects.  The remainder of FY10 flood mapping funding is utilized for Program management, operations such as maintaining Program services and infrastructure, and technical services supporting flood map production, such as maintaining the levee inventory.

11 11 Map 2: Risk MAP Activities Relative to Map Mod Counties Through FY10

12 12 Map 3: Risk MAP Coastal, Levee, or Riverine FY09 and FY10 Funding

13 13 Risk MAP Products  Changes Since Last Map Improved Outreach Increase transparency and trust  Multi-Frequency Depth & Water-Surface Elevation (WSE) Grids 10%, 2%, 1%, 0.5%, 2% annual chance profiles Inundation 3 feet or less 3 to 6 feet 6 feet +

14 14 Risk MAP Products  HAZUS Risk Assessment & National Flood Risk Layer Enables communities to understand risk by reference to existing structure loss  Contributing Flood Hazard Factors Highlights areas of concern identified throughout project

15 Your Watershed Flood Risk Report May 18, 2010 PREPARED FOR: A, Village of B, City of C, Town of Watershed Flood Risk Report Changes Since Last Map Multi-Frequency Depth Grids HAZUS Risk Assessment Contributing Flood Hazard Factors

16 16 Risk MAP DFIRM/FIS FIS Reports and DFIRM Maps will continue to fulfill regulatory requirements and support the NFIP
