FEMA Floodplain Mapping

About the Project

  • The Flood Control and Water Conservation District is collaborating with FEMA through the Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program in order to maintain up-to-date floodplain mapping and other flood hazard information within Placer County. The main objective of the program is to provide new or improved 1 percent annual chance floodplain, or 100-year, mapping of major creeks within developing areas of the County.
  • Through four CTP efforts, over 160 miles of new or updated mapping will be provided in urbanized areas of the County. 
  • The creeks to be studied were prioritized through the District Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) consisting of member agency staff that identified the need for new or updated areas of floodplain mapping.
  • The District often leads the initial hydrologic studies which serve as the basis for the updated or new mapping produced separately by FEMA’s mapping contractors.
  • District staff have been providing regular updates regarding the CTP process to the District Board and cooperating member agencies at public Board of Director meetings.
  • Interested bidders can submit proposals for the District's CTP No. 4 floodplain mapping project per the following open solicitation Request for Proposals (RFP):  https://www.placer.ca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/64726
