Risk MAP: Our flood prevention planning program
Ecology leads floodplain management in Washington. We provide technical assistance to local communities to help them better plan within the floodplain. We work to reduce losses to life and property, and protect the natural environmental functions and values of floodplains.
We partner with the Federal Agency Management Agency (FEMA) to run the Risk MAP program in Washington State. We give local communities the tools and expertise to better understand their flood risk. Risk MAP delivers high-quality data, risk assessment tools and mitigation expertise to communities, tribes, and state and local agencies in their efforts to reduce the risks from natural hazards including floods, earthquakes, wildfire and landslides.
If you have questions about Risk MAP or flood hazard mapping, contact Jerry Franklin at 360-407-7470.
If you have questions about the National Flood Insurance Program or floodplain regulations, contact our regional floodplain specialists.
