The Quick Guide for Floodplain Management is a high impact way to help property owners, elected officials, realtors, insurance agents and others better understand floodplain management.

It uses clear language and simple graphics to illustrate important aspects of floodplain management, including:

  • Why communities regulate floodplains
  • Understanding the floodplain and floodway
  • Detailed and approximate flood zones
  • Activities that require permits
  • Elevation Certificates
  • The concepts of pre-FIRM and post-FIRM
  • How freeboard will lower flood insurance premiums
  • Flood openings (vents) for enclosures
  • Elevating heat pumps and anchoring tanks
  • Substantial improvement
  • Accessory structures
  • Manufactured homes and recreational vehicles
  • And more
