FEMA Seeks Public Comment on Revised Analysis and Mapping Procedures for Levees

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is accepting comments on the proposed solution to revise flood mapping and analysis procedures for non-accredited levees on Flood Insurance Rate Maps. During the past months, FEMA has worked with stakeholders, technical experts, and the public to revise their current process for mapping flood risk to replace a one-size-fits-all approach with one that will take the unique conditions of each levee into consideration.  FEMA seeks input on this policy in terms of its feasibility, flexibility, and collaborative nature.  A 45-day public comment period is open until January 30, 2012. More information about the FEMA revisions can be found here and instructions for submitting comments can be found here.
