Nebraska Flood Hazard Mitigation Plan

Flood Hazard Mitigation Plan

Upcoming Public Hearing, Meetings, and Input Opportunities

Events will be held across the State of Nebraska during the first week of June 2021. The purpose of meetings will be to collect public input related to impacts from historic flooding that occurred in 2019. Attendees will be able to provide location based comments regarding impacts, repairs and improvements that have been made since the flood, provide comments on recovery efforts including reimbursement, learn about resources related to floodplain regulations, and gain a better understanding of oversight at the local, state and federal level. Information collected will provide a baseline for the plan which will be developed over the next 12 months.

Plan Purpose

These actions are provided under the provisions of Nebraska Revised Statute §61-228. The resulting plan will identify cost-effective flood mitigation strategies to reduce the disruption of lives and livelihoods and prioritize making Nebraska communities more resilient and identify opportunities to implement flood hazard mitigation strategies that reduce the impact of flood events. The plan development process will work to improve knowledge and understanding of available recovery resources while identifying potential gaps in current disaster program delivery and identify potential funding sources that can be used to improve the resilience of the state through flood mitigation and post-flood disaster recovery.

 

Key Benefits

The Statewide Flood Hazard Mitigation Plan development process will benefit Nebraskans and the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources in the following ways:

  • Increase understanding of Nebraska's flood risks
  • Give local communities a plan to build on
  • Position Nebraska for more funding
  • Incorporate Nebraskans' concerns into future planning
