FEMA Policy: Hazard Mitigation Assistance Acquisition Projects: Hydraulic Fracturing and Horizontal Directional Drilling [open pdf - 570KB]
From the Purpose: "The purpose of this policy is to provide HMA [Hazard Mitigation Assistance] program guidance on the compatibility of subsurface hydraulic fracturing and horizontal directional drilling (hydraulic fracturing/HDD) uses occurring on or under properties acquired for open space with HMA funds. FEMA property acquisitions under the HMA programs permanently remove structures from risk of damage and seek to conserve natural floodplain functions. Properties eligible for acquisition must be able to demonstrate clear title, or that any easements or other encumbrances to the property are compatible with open space that conserves the natural and beneficial floodplain functions. Post-acquisition land uses and structures must be approved by FEMA."
