Moving forward with Risk MAPPresentation Outline
Risk MAP Development
Project study area funded prior to 2010, pre-appeal phase
Strong Regional Support
Efforts could not exceed $100k
Good elevation data
Completion by February 2011, lessons learned integrated prior to FY2011 Risk MAP
Madison County Project
Strong stakeholder relationship, OWR and AMEC
Current ground surface data:LiDAR 2007
Area which will benefit from products, mitigation potential
Existing county revision, several detailed studies
CSLF example: Bradford Creek, Madison, AL
Flood Control Structures
Initial Raster Mosaicing
Using AFG Floodplain
Using Geo-RAS Floodplain
Velocity grid example: confluence of Indian Creek Trib 1 and Indian Creek, Intersection of Slaughter Road and Interstate 565 Huntsville, AL, 100 yr event
30 -Year Percent Chance
1 - (1 - p)30
Procedure derived based on FEMA guidance
ESRI model builder tool created
Grids were created for each of the selected flooding source intervals and mosaiced by county
Aldridge Creek, near Valley Hill Country Club area, Huntsville, AL
High density in floodplain, LOW RISK?
FEMA provided a Level 1 HAZUS risk assessment for each census block.
Results were poor in quality.
Classified all census blocks as residential in Madison County.
Community stakeholders noted areas of high risk labeled as very low risk in HAZUS.
Enhanced flood risk assessment not possible with current version of HAZUS, needs to be revised.

Flood Risk Assessment
Guidance details MR4 version cannot calculate annualized loss but does include a HAZUS alternative loss calculation formula.
Guidance does not address partial dataset information entered into the Comprehensive Data Management System (CDMS) but defers users to CDMS manual.
MR5 available and new version of CDMS should be available soon
