FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: City of Keyser Curb and Ditch Project   [open pdf - 27KB]

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: "The undersized and aged drain system was unable to process the runoff from heavy rains and flooded homes, property, and streets in the area. This project consists of replacing the drop inlet and storm drain that empty directly into New Creek. Completion of this phase will eliminate the frequent system backups and the flooding to houses in the adjacent area." 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]
