Alternate Title: Efforts to Mitigate: Elkhorn River Showing Positive Results

"The FEMA Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "In the county of Dodge, Nebraska The Elkhorn River has caused repetitive flooding damage. Using funds that were applied for and were awarded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), the local residents and LPN/NRD were able to mitigate and stabilize over 2,670 feet of river bank on the west side of the Elkhorn River." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
