Applying ASCE 24 Engineering Standards to Flood Retrofitting and Reconstruction Projects Webinar: August 13
In the Spring of 2014, FEMA adopted Policy-203-074-1, Minimum Design Standard for HMA Projects in Flood Hazard Areas, requiring the use of engineering design standards detailed in ASCE 24 Flood Resistant Design and Construction formitigation reconstruction, structure elevation, and dry flood proofing projects funded by Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs.
FEMA will present a 3 1/2-hour webinar to help HMA applicants and subapplicants understand how to apply ASCE 24 to these project types. The webinar is based on the document Guidance for Applying ASCE 24 Engineering Standards to HMA Flood Retrofitting and Reconstruction Projects (2013).
a. Understand FEMA's new HMA policy regarding ASCE 24
b. Identify and understand the applicable ASCE 24 requirements for elevation, dry flood proofing, and mitigation reconstruction in riverine and coastal flood hazard areas
c. Review typical mitigation measures and how historic property reviews and the ASCE 24 standard applies
d. Understand FEMA's application and project implementation process
e. Use FEMA's guidance and tools to help implement successful projects
