Call for National Flood Risk Management Strategy

Date: 2014

Eight years ago in the wake of hurricane Katrina the American Society of Civil Engineers issued a call to action to the challenge of increasing flood losses. Over the past two years the ASCE Task Committee, which includes Dave Fowler, ASFPM's Watershed POD facilitator, examined our national response to this call for action. This report is the product of that examination.

Federal Assistance Programs for Sewer Flooding

Authors: Eveready Flood Control, French & Associates, ASFPM
Date: 1990; Pages: 30

Sewer flooding is a condition that occurs when storm or combined storm and sanitary sewers are overloaded due to heavy local rains. It can also result when there is a blockage or flooding at a discharge point. In some cases, infiltration, inflow or cross-connections can overload sanitary sewers during heavy rains. This report is the result of French & Associates' review of 1,100 federal programs. They are arranged in classes that reflect their utility in different locations or situations as shown in the table of contents.

Issues to Floodproof Retrofitting

Authors: Wallace A. Wilson, ASFPM
Date: 1990; Pages: 20

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is probably the single-most important factor to bring awareness of flooding and flood mitigation efforts to the National attention. Probably the largest problem with the NFIP lies in addressing 'repetitive loss' structures, i.e., those structures that suffer flood losses on a recurring basis. There appears to be ample opportunity to affect repetitive flood losses through floodproof retrofitting to reduce such recurring loss.

NFIP Regulations: What You'd Change If You Could

Authors: Tim Keptner, Jay Hamill, ASFPM
Date: 1991; Pages: 20

This paper includes the official survey and various highlighted responses and statistics- addressing the frequency with which NFIP flood mapping and requirements should be re-assessed and addressed. It offers arguments for many different perspectives on when this process should be completed, reviewing varying motivations and challenges that influence individual response.

With the passage of Ordinance 765 in 1963, the Village of Wheeling, IL, adopted their first regulations governing construction of new buildings in areas which had previously experienced flooding. This Ordinance was the initial action by the Village to regulate new construction in these areas, thereby reducing future damages due to flooding.

Flood Damage Reduction and Wetland Conservation, Three Successful Projects in Louisiana

Authors: Rod Emmer, ASFPM
Date: 1994; Pages: 30

This paper evaluates three projects conceived and developed outside the traditional local administrative processes and determines the attributes they have in common that characterize their successes. The flood tracking chart is an additional tool for warning potential victims of imminent danger and advising them of available options for protecting personal property and their own safety.
