Implementation and Impacts of Flood Insurance Reform Legislation

Developing & Implementing Dam Removal Projects

Finding that Base Flood Elevation (BFE)! Tools and Techniques for Determining BFEs



Implementation and Impacts of Flood Insurance Reform Legislation
Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 12:00 PM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  12:00 PM - 1:30 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Thursday, August 13, 2015
12:00pm - 1:30pm Central Standard Time (starting at 1:00pm Eastern, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific)

DETAILS
This webinar was formerly titled, "HFIAA (GW-14) Meets BW-12"

The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 recently became law, but changes have already been put in place and more are planned as implementation continues for both the new law and the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Rather than rolling back the Biggert-Waters reforms, the HFIAA in fact added more sections while rolling back only a couple. Floodplain managers and the public will still need to understand the reforms in both bills and be prepared to address the flood insurance affordability issues that remain.

HFIAA will affect every single NFIP policyholder and its reforms actually could result in higher total flood insurance costs for some property owners than under Biggert-Waters. Sadly, flood insurance affordability will continue to be an issue. There are several changes related to flood mapping processes, to outreach, to information on the maps themselves. FEMA is trying to fast track many of these changes but will be slowed down due to rulemaking on others.

In this webinar, you will learn:
  • What sections and changes have already been implemented and which will be implemented in the near future,
  • To be better prepared for the questions from policy- and non-policyholders on implementation of the reform laws including rate changes and premium refunds, and
  • Strategies and actions that can be taken to help policyholders reduce flood insurance premiums and address affordability.
All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity!

Bruce Bender, Bender Consulting Services, LLC
Chad Berginnis, ASFPM Executive Director

Developing & Implementing Dam Removal Projects
Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 1:00 PM (120 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  1:00 PM - 3:00 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Thursday, September 24, 2015
1:00pm - 3:00pm Central Time
(starting at 2:00pm ET, 12:00pm MT, 11:00am PT)

DETAILS
Few things have as fundamental an impact on rivers as dams. Dams block a flow and can harm fish and wildlife, affect clean water, and alter recreation. When the negative impacts of a dam on the river and communities outweigh the benefits, dam removal may be a sound approach to restore healthy rivers, floodplains, and riverside communities.

Dam removal projects may appear intimidating; however, American Rivers has developed training designed to empower floodplain managers, state agencies, nonprofits, and others to undertake these projects. This webinar is a broad introduction to American Rivers’ more advanced, multi-day training. We will kick off the webinar with an overview of why dam removal is an effective approach for restoring rivers and floodplains, before moving into resources and strategies for initial project exploration. Finally, we break down the science and design of dam removals into six components.

In this webinar, you will learn:
  • steps in the dam removal process;
  • how to develop a planning data sheet to determine if your project is straightforward or complex; and
  • ow to scope out the components of a dam removal project.
All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity!

Presenters
  • Serena McClain, American Rivers Director, River Restoration
  • Brian Graber, American Rivers Sr. Director, River Restoration

Finding that Base Flood Elevation (BFE)! Tools and Techniques for Determining BFEs
Tuesday, October 06, 2015 at 1:00 PM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  1:00 PM - 2:30 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Tuesday, October 6, 2015
1:00PM - 2:30PM Central Time
(starting at 2pm ET, 12pm MT, 11am PT)

DETAILS
Are you getting more questions about determining BFEs at a site, even in approximate A Zones? Do you work with flood development permits or FEMA Elevation Certificates (ECs)? Do you need a BFE for an approximate A zone but are unsure where to start? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, this webinar is for you.

Recent NFIP reforms make determining precise flood risk more important than ever in response to rising flood insurance costs. Identifying a BFE with confidence helps to determine actuarial flood insurance rates and plan for possible flood mitigation actions. In some cases the BFE is already available, in others it must be calculated.

Presenter:
Brian Varrella, PE, CFM is a Senior Engineer at Olsson Associates, co-owner of Forum V Consulting, former Floodplain Manager for the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, and Chair of the Colorado Assn. of Stormwater and Floodplain Mgrs. He has helped professionals and property owners identify BFEs in 19 states across the nation. Brian's approach uses all available resources to determine BFEs to prepare local permits and complete ECs in riverine Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs). Determining BFEs is not an impossible task, and the demand for more detailed information is increasing!

In this webinar we will:
  • Identify and use free resources to determine riverine BFEs
  • Explain the simplified and detailed methods for determining BFEs
  • Determine how and when to apply different methods in approximate A Zone SFHAs.
All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity, and will be given links to various free resources available to anyone working with BFEs.
