ASFPM has officially responded to a request from the Technical Mapping Advisory Council (TMAC) for input to help shape its recommendations to FEMA regarding the future flood hazard and flood risk identification program.
The association identified four key issues that it believes are critical to developing a proposed vision statement for the flood mapping program and should be incorporated into the 2020 TMAC report or the 2021 work plan.
These issues pertain to:
- Atlas 14 updates
- Future conditions mapping
- Publicly available dam failure inundation maps
- Integrating flood risk and natural floodplain functions
