ASFPM and 33 other groups urge White House to develop flood-ready standard
Friday, September 6, 2019

ASFPM joined 33 other groups in a letter to the White House, urging the Administration to develop a flood-ready standard to protect federal infrastructure investments from the devastating impacts and costs of flood-related disasters.


Two years ago, the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard, an executive order meant to protect taxpayer dollars spent in flood-prone areas, was repealed. Ten days later, Hurricane Harvey brought historic rainfall and catastrophic flooding throughout southeast Texas and parts of Louisiana. In the aftermath of Harvey, the Administration stated its intent to put in place new standards that would ensure we rebuild smarter and stronger following disasters. Unfortunately, a replacement has yet to be announced or put in place.


Read the full letter, which was sent to John Bolton, Mick Mulvaney and their respective staff
