Flood Proofing Workshop: Homeowners & Community Leaders
June 24, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you live in or near a flood plain and would like to learn about flood proofing actions you can take to reduce flood risk and decrease flood damages?
This is your chance to participate in a presentation presented by the USACE National Nonstructural Flood Proofing Committee on different types of nonstructural flood proofing techniques. The first hour of the event will include a flood proofing discussion on topics such as elevating buildings, wet and dry flood proofing, and relocation/acquisition. The second hour will consist of an open house where you can learn about federal and state programs that may be available to assist you and your community with flood proofing.
Federal and state agency representatives will be on hand to discuss other floodplain management topics, such as the National Flood Insurance Program, Community Rating System, and flood forecasts and warnings.
