FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) of Texas   [open pdf - 34KB]

Alternate Title: Lower Colorado River Authority State of Texas

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: "How can communities maintain accurate, up-to-date flood hazard data? That is the quest of FEMA and the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) in their Cooperative Technical Partner (CTP) agreement, signed in 1999. Two pilot projects to produce digital maps in Central Texas have demonstrated how the CTP program can help communities without technical expertise to participate in the digital map conversion process." 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]
