FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Urban Drainage and Flood - Control District   [open pdf - 28KB]

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: "On May 17, 1999, Denver's Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD) became one of the first partners to sign an agreement with FEMA under the Cooperating Technical Communities (CTC) initiative (now Cooperating Technical Partners [CTP] initiative). As Scott Tucker, Executive Director of UDFCD, sees it, 'The thrust of the [CTP initiative] is for us to work together to create and maintain accurate up-to-date flood hazard data for the 32 communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program which are served by [UDFCD].'" 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]
