The North Carolina Division of Emergency Management Floodplain Management staff will host its annual Summer Workshops. Theses two-day workshops will provide training on various topics related to floodplain management to include but not limited to: regulations, mapping, elevation certificates, mitigation, ordinances and other related topics. The intent of the workshop is to promote a safer environment and to educated participants in development in special flood hazard areas. The course is designed to provide in-depth training and generate class discussions on topics in greater detail than a basic course.

Particular modules provided for this location are:
Non-standard Projects – How to Permit: An explanation of how to issue permits for boardwalks, recreation facilities, soccer fields, baseball fields, etc. and the best way to permit and process these types of projects.
Substantial Damage/Substantial Improvement: This will provide students with a better insight of how to regulate major additions and other improvements to buildings in the floodplain as well as how to regulate reconstruction and repairs to buildings that have been severely damaged.
Data Acquisition: This presentation will provide an overview of current and future data available through Risk Management and how it is applied in the development of flood and other hazard risk products.
No-Rise/LOMA/CLOMA Applications and Requirements: What should planners and other local officials be looking for when the applications come in (bridges, roads, structures, etc.). Also, what we need to be looking for before we sign off on community support form to make sure that we understand the impacts of the project.
The MOA Between NCDOT & NCFPM: This presentation will afford participants the understanding of the Memorandum of Agreement between NCDOT and Floodplain Mapping, including how projects are reviewed, how impacts are addressed, and how you can get informed.
Roundtable Discussion - Various topics will be discussed by all present as to the most appropriate way to handle a particular floodplain issue. Topics will include:
Non-Compliance Issues: What are the best ways to handle them and when should we get the state involved?
Technical Assistance: Who at the state does what and who the best contacts are for the different things that we need help with?
Section 1316 – When Used as Compliance Tool: This presentation will provide participants how to use Section 1316 as a compliance tool when the denial of flood insurance coverage may be necessary.
Elevation Certificates: This presentation will afford participants a better understanding of elevation certificates and will go into detail about what to look for, how to determine what you are looking at, calculations, etc.
Flood Risk Information System/Community Assistance Portal: This presentation will discuss and demonstrate the Flood Risk Information System and the new Community Assistance Portal. Students will have access to on-site computers to practice their skills for both applications.
Clearinghouse Projects: This presentation will discuss the Clearinghouse Projects to include environmental reviews as related to floodplain management under the State and National Environmental Policy Act (SEPA and NEPA), including identifying impacts and assuring compliance with Federal and State Executive Orders.
