FEMA releases floodplain management guidance

FEMA developed guidance that clarifies and refines the requirements that apply to certain agricultural structures and accessory structures located in Special Flood Hazard Areas. This guidance is a reference document for floodplain managers and those involved in regulating, planning, designing and constructing agricultural structures and accessory structures in special flood hazard areas. Additionally, the guidance document establishes a clear, consistent process for ensuring compliance with National Flood Insurance Program design and performance standards for those structures located within the special flood hazard area. The document supports the policy, “Floodplain Management Requirements for Agricultural Structures and Accessory Structures,” that was signed and became effective earlier this year. For additional information, refer to the guidance and policy available on FEMA’s website.
