Alternate Title: Fenway Community Development Corporation Develops Flood Mitigation

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "During repairs to the building, the Fenway Community Development Corporation worked with FEMA Region I and Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency to develop a flood mitigation project. This project included the following building retrofits: (1) The elevator sump depth was increased and equipped with a larger pump and debris screen; and (2) A check valve was installed on the main waste line to prevent sewage backup." 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]
