background
Background

Response & Recovery

  • FEMA, USACE, and Others Thru Traditional Authorities

In Addition

  • Interagency Levee Task Force
      • PL84-99 Provides Authority
      • ER 500-1-1 and ER 11-1-320 Provide Policy Guidance
      • OMB/CEQ Memo 18 Feb 97 directed USACE lead
      • Short-term measures to restore & maintain protection
      • Address flood damage reduction on a watershed basis
      • Consider all relevant options for levee repair, including non-structural alternatives (NSA)
      • Multi-agency response to damaged floodplain management systems

PROVIDING STRATEGIC FLOOD-RISK ALTERNATIVES

goals objectives
Goals & Objectives
  • Regional watershed application of National Flood Risk Management Program
  • Agencies understand state long-term mitigation plans, and enable implementation of those plans
  • Align watershed flood risk activities with mitigation activities
  • Holistic approach to leverage all authorities to minimize risks in a reasonable and cost-effective manner
  • Equal consideration to structural and non-structural measures
  • Identify potential funding streams for flood risk management initiatives and potential comprehensive study efforts
  • Ensure vertical (local/state/tribal/national) and horizontal (interstate) communication and information sharing

rfrmt fpm concepts
RFRMT FPM Concepts
  • Projects reduce flood damage upstream & downstream
  • Lower long-term cost to taxpayers
  • Improveenvironmental conditions
  • Enhance landowner ability to meet obligations
  • Compatible with local & regional floodplain mgmt plans
  • Supportive of the health of upland areas
  • Environmental protection, restoration, and enhancement
  • Encourage local involvement and assumption of responsibility for future floodplain management
  • Avoid/minimize future damage thru alternative FPM plan

nsa project guidance
NSA Project Guidance
  • Principal Purpose of NSA Projects is Enhanced Floodplain Mgmt:
    • Floodplain Restoration
    • Provision or Restoration of Floodways
    • Reduction of Future Flood Damages and Associated Repair Costs
    • Habitat Restoration is Possible Beneficial Component
  • Example of Allowable Components (PL 84-99):
    • Land acquisition
    • Removal of structures for salvage or reuse; debris removal
    • Removal, protection, relocation of roads, utilities, and railroads
    • Construction of features for water flow into, thru, around NSA Project area
    • Non-structural habitat restoration
    • Removal or razing of existing levees, bank protection structures, and riprap
    • Floodproofing

louisa 11 levee district non structural alternative project
Louisa #11 Levee District Non-Structural Alternative Project
  • Non-structural repair alternative requested by the non-federal project sponsor
    • Alternatives developed in the ILWG
    • Repair of levee breaches in up stream portion of project
    • Restoration of flood plain connection of river to existing wetland easements in lower portion of project
    • Collaboration with levee district, county, State, NRCS, FEMA, USACE

- USACE levee repair

- NRCS easements

- FEMA mitigation (buy outs)

- State / local easements

successes
Successes
  • Long-term Regional Interagency Chartered Commitment to Collaboration on Flood Risk Reduction on a Watershed System Basis
  • Louisa Co Levee District #11, Collaborated Non-Structural Alternative Project (NSAP) with USACE levee repair, NRCS easements, FEMA mitigation (buy outs), State / local easements
  • Henderson D&LD, Gulfport IL NSAP with USACE levee repair, and FEMA buyouts and relocation
  • Illinois River Basin Leased Cabin Demolition and Elevation
  • Positive outlook for increased FPMS funding

current initiatives
Current Initiatives
  • Changes to PL84-99 and/or policy to allow more resilient structural repairs (e.g. breach control structures)
  • Regional MOU between USACE, FEMA, and USGS for consolidated database of historic high water marks
  • Integration of USACE and NRCS data in the national levee data base system
  • Assess viability of consolidating FEMA PA406 and USACE PL84-99 authorities
  • Mechanisms available for immediate “Recon” study of projects with promising NSAPs (e.g. Public Assistance to States)
  • Regional collaboration of individual state flood risk management teams (Silver Jackets)
  • Consistent LiDAR data standards between states
  • Enable preparedness and response awareness and outreach
