No Rise, No Problem! Managing Infrastructure in the Floodway webinar

After the Disaster: Mitigating Infrastructure Against Flooding Using 406 Mitigation Assistance



No Rise, No Problem! Managing Infrastructure in the Floodway webinar
Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 11:00 AM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  11:00 AM - 12:30 PM 
 
HOST
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
October 12, 2017
11:00am - 12:30pm Central Time

DETAILS
Does the phrase "no-rise" make you sweat? Have you ever planned a project across a floodway and felt the early pains of despair? Are you a professional working in public infrastructure or floodplain management? If these describe you, then this is the webinar for you.

Human infrastructure and natural hazards share the same space in our built environment. Balancing fiscal limitations with social evolution in a natural environment is an impossible task without a full toolkit of options and opportunities. This webinar will help design, construction, data management, and public compliance professionals develop new tools for that toolkit. This event will showcase 11 years of evolution derived from local pavement management practices, vetted with state and federal partners, and applied on the ground as new standard operating procedures in the Colorado Department of Transportation.

We’ll showcase the successes of a partnership between Federal Highway Administration, Colorado Department of Transportation, FEMA Region VIII, and other state partners. The webinar will provide a brief overview of floodways and no-rise certification requirements, then show a 6-step progression to help professionals understand how efforts can be streamlined to create successful projects that accommodate flood risks with analytical tools and field practices. Our goal is to share these evolving methods, refine them with feedback, and create new ways of managing flood risk across the nation. Join us and help move the needle on best practices in engineering and floodplain management!

Objectives:
  • Identify critical areas of allowable rise floodways
  • Streamline processes for certifying no-rise in base flood elevations
  • Provide alternative options to FEMA Letters of Map Change
  • Leverage technological solutions to regulatory challenges
  • Identify multi-agency partnering opportunities
Intended Audience: Floodplain management professionals working in the floodway, infrastructure design and pavement management professionals, surveyors, engineers and architects certifying no-rise, and local officials responsible for certification review and approval.

Presenter: Brian Varrella, PE, CFM
Brian Varrella, Region 4 Hydraulics Unit Lead, at the Colorado Department of Transportation balances his career between private consulting and public service. He currently applies his skills at the DOT to assist with hydraulic design, emergency management, floodplain compliance, and resiliency planning. Brian supports a Federal Highway Administration partnership initiative, “Every Day Counts” to apply innovative solutions to every day challenges. He is passionate about helping to bridge the gap between human infrastructure and floodplain management through education, knowledge transfer, and cross-professional collaboration.

Brian has worked with or for 16 DOTs across the U.S. and enjoys the variety, knowledge, and creativity encountered while collaborating with floodplain and infrastructure professionals. His free time is spent outside making sure the world we all work and live in is vibrant, accessible, and safe. Brian is the current ASFPM Vice Chair, and feels fortunate to be part of ASFPM’s mission promoting policies and activities to reduce human suffering from flooding.

Registrants will receive access to a recording of the webinar, slides, and links to various free resources.

After the Disaster: Mitigating Infrastructure Against Flooding Using 406 Mitigation Assistance
Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 1:00 PM (90 minutes)

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

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
November 9, 2017
1:00pm - 2:30pm Central Time

DETAILS
Disaster costs are increasing – as is the amount reimbursed to states through the FEMA Public Assistance (PA) Program. PA, FEMA’s largest grant program, provides financial and technical assistance to communities responding to and recovering from incidents declared by the President. Most often, PA helps fund projects to repair damaged or destroyed infrastructure owned by communities and states; however, PA also provides funding to increase community resilience in order to break the cycle of disaster losses by providing funding for eligible hazard mitigation projects through Section 406. 

This webinar will explain eligible hazard mitigation through Section 406, help participants to identify cost-effective hazard mitigation measures, and highlight how to successfully advocate for more mitigation during the repair of public facilities during the disaster recovery phase. 

Objectives:
Understand the basics of Section 406 Mitigation, including eligibility requirements
Streamline processes for implementing Section 406 Mitigation during damage assessment and project worksheet formulation
Learn how to compile documentation required for Section 406 Mitigation projects
Locate resources for Benefit-Cost Analyses

Intended Audience: Emergency managers, floodplain managers, local planning and zoning officials, public works, state grant program managers

Presenter:
Robyn Wiseman, CFM, ASFPM Research Scientist and former Public Assistance Officer for State of Wisconsin. Prior to her work with ASFPM, Robin worked for Wisconsin Emergency Management as public assistance officer delivering the FEMA Public Assistance Program statewide. She participated in disaster field operations in four federal disaster declarations and helped manage recovery and mitigation projects across nine declarations in hazard mitigation and recovery. Robyn’s passion for combining land use planning, floodplain management, disaster response and recovery stems from her background in state and local emergency management. She holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, an M.S. in urban and regional planning (with land use and environmental planning emphasis) from the University of Iowa.

Registrants will receive access to a recording of the webinar, slides, and links to various free resources.
