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

Lender Based Flood Zone Determinations: Essentials for Floodplain Managers

Developing & Implementing Dam Removal Projects



Finding that Base Flood Elevation (BFE)! Tools and Techniques for Determining BFEs
Friday, March 27, 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
Friday, March 27, 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.

Brian Varrella, PE, CFM is co-owner of Forum V Consulting, Floodplain Manager for the City of Fort Collins, 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.

Presenter:
Brian Varrella PE, CFM, City of Fort Collins Floodplain Administrator and Chair of the Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers, routinely helps surveyors, engineers, and property owners with this difficult issue. Brian’s approach is to use all available resources to determine BFEs primarily for use in preparing local permits and completing Elevation Certificates. Fort Collins, a CRS Class 4 community, has used these techniques successfully. Determining BFEs is not an impossible task and demand for providing this type of information is only going to increase!

Lender Based Flood Zone Determinations: Essentials for Floodplain Managers
Thursday, April 16, 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
Thursday, April 16, 2015
1:00PM - 2:30PM Central Time
(starting at 2pm ET, 12pm MT, 11am PT)

DETAILS
Lenders must make flood zone determinations to comply with the mandatory purchase requirement under the NFIP. This can be a mysterious process independent of permitting, outreach, and other duties done on a daily basis by floodplain managers. Floodplain managers are often asked about how flood determination companies make determinations and the accuracy of the information.
This webinar will provide perspective on the flood determinations used by lend-ers: the purpose and methods used, technical procedures, and challenges faced that may result in data discrepancies for stakeholders. We’ll address how new regulations and legislation affect the flood determination process, the companies that perform them, and the recipients of the data.

In this webinar we will:
  • Offer an overview of the zone determination process and regulations;
  • Walk through the Standard Hazard Determination Form (SHDF);
  • Explain how zone discrepancies occur and how they are resolved;
  • Outline challenges facing the flood determination industry, and implications;
  • Introduce the National Flood Determination Association's Certification Program, and how the NFDA can be a resource for floodplain managers.

Target Audience: Floodplain managers, state/local officials, and anyone dealing with the flood determination industry.

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.

Presenters:
Michael Bremer, CFM; Director & Techncial Mapping Committee Chair, NFDA
Scott Giberson, CFM; Legislative Committee Member, NFDA
Leila Taha, Board Secretary and Outreach Committee Chair, NFDA

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
