The latest edition of The Index has been released by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Floodplain Management Office.
This informative newsletter will be especially interesting to those who pay attention to the issues surrounding the Upper Chattahoochee River Basin (UCRB) Project.
The UCRB Project is nearing completion. Five of the seven counties now have effective FIRMs and FIS Reports.
Over the last several months, GA’s DNR — in partnership with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) — has been holding Flood Risk Review and Resilience Meetings. The purpose of these meetings is to identify severe flood risks and determine potential strategies and resources available to communities to help reduce those risks.
Risk MAP projects focus primarily on floods, but the tools and information shared at these meetings provide a framework for planning for and addressing other natural hazards.
The Index is a publication of GA DNR Floodplain Management.
