ASFPM’s mission is to promote education, policies and
activities that mitigate current and future losses, costs and
human suffering caused by flooding.
Developed by ASFPM’s Stormwater Management Committee, this new paper explores the challenges of urban flooding, outlines concepts related to planning and mitigation to reduce future flood losses, and provides recommendations at the local and national scale to address urban flooding in communities nationwide.
ASFPM submitted comments to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regarding the proposals to re-issue the Nationwide Permits and General Conditions.
The omnibus still needs to be negotiated, passed by Congress, and signed by the President, but this is a very positive development. We had been led to believe that flood map funding was at risk of being cut in the Senate and immediately swung into action.
