ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Preparing for Floods   [open pdf - 26KB]

Alternate Title: Preparing For Floods Along the Shores of Westport, CT

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: "Located along the shores of Western Long Island Sound, 26 percent of the residents of the Town of Westport live within the 100-year floodplain. Taking an integrated approach to mitigation, Westport implemented several concurrent mitigation strategies." 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]
