Description
This 1-hour online course provides the user with a comprehensive overview of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) "regulatory floodway," or simply the "floodway." The purpose of the floodway is to reserve the central part of the floodplain, to ensure that some part of the floodplain will remain open to carry floodwaters, efficiently. The floodway is one of the most overlooked and misunderstood aspects of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and community development. This course examines special considerations for development associated with the floodway, which must be understood by engineers, building officials, developers, and others.
