Risk MAP and Discovery FEMA Region [#], [WATERSHED NAME] Watershed Discovery Meetings [DATE]
2 Meeting Agenda Welcome! Brief Overview of Risk MAP and Discovery Breakout Sessions – Interactive Discussions Session A – Mapping Needs Location, Study Level, Reason, Priority Session B – Other Flood-Related Concerns Levees, Data, ESAs, Funding Mitigation Planning and Projects Compliance and Communications Close
3 Overview: Risk MAP Five year effort to modernize maps Result: digital flood data and digital maps for 92% of population Improved flood data quality Limited up-front coordination Scoping not mandatory Collaborative approach Goals: quality data, public awareness, action that reduces risk Watershed-oriented Focus on up-front coordination Discovery is mandatory
4 The Vision for Risk MAP 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
5 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%, 0.2% annual chance profiles Inundation 3 feet or less 3 to 6 feet 6 feet +
6 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
7 Risk MAP DFIRM/FIS FIS Reports and DFIRM Maps will continue to fulfill regulatory requirements and support the NFIP
8 Discovery Discovery is the process of data mining, collection, and analysis with the goal of initiating a flood risk or mitigation project and risk discussions with the watershed When: After an area/watershed has been prioritized Before a Risk MAP project is scoped or funded Required for new and updated… Flood studies Flood risk assessments Mitigation planning technical assistance projects Why: Increases visibility of flood risk information, education, involvement Helps inform whether a Risk MAP project will occur in the watershed
9 Discovery Process Federal and State Data Collection Information Exchange: [DATES] Risk MAP Overview Local Issues Questionnaire: Identify Risk MAP Needs Discovery Meetings: [DATES] Risk MAP Project(s) Identified FEMA Funding Allocated for Risk MAP Project
