FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Updating Flood-Hazard Information in DuPage   [open pdf - 26KB]

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: "As a large county in Illinois with an active water resources management program, DuPage County has developed its own, highly advanced methodology for modeling the flood hazard. Its principal goal in the Cooperative Technical Partner (CTP) program is to integrate their water resources management efforts with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) program so the FEMA Flood Insurance Rates Maps (FIRMs) will reflect the most up-to-date flood hazard information available for the county." 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]
