10 National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) The NFIP is based upon a voluntary mutual agreement between the federal government (administered i d by DHS/FEMA) and participating communities (counties & municipalities) across the country. The Agreement. Community must: Adopt/enforce local floodplain regulations And in return, Federal Government provides: Availability of flood insurance
11 NFIP History 1968 The NFIP was established by Congress on August 1, 1968 with the passage of the National Flood Insurance Act The program was broadened d and modified d with the passage of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of Additional modifications were incorporated through the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of The NFIP is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); a division ision of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
12 NFIP Participation i Community yparticipation p is voluntary However, there are ramifications of non-participation: Federal Flood Insurance not available Non-eligibility ibilit of post-disaster t financial i assistance NFIP participation required to receive assistance
13 NFIP Participation i Requirements Participating communities must adopt & enforce a floodplain l management ordinance that t meets or exceeds the minimum NFIP criteria (specified under Chapter 44, Section 60.3 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)) Continued Eligibility based on compliance with program regulations and enforcement of the adopted ordinance. Compliance is monitored by FEMA via an audit process called a Community Assistance Visit (CAV).
14 NFIP Community Status Book shtm
15 NFIP Framework There are 3 basic parts to the NFIP 1.) Regulations 2.) Insurance 3.) Mapping ** Mitigation Clark Fork R. near Plains, Sanders County
16 NFIP Regulations The NFIP underwrites insurance coverage only in those communities that adopt and enforce regulations. The regulations are designed to protect new structures from the flood levels projected on the FEMA regulatory flood maps (FIRM Flood Insurance Rate Map) Regulations focus on protecting insurable buildings. Communities must meet NFIP criteria of 44 CFR gov/nara/cfr/waisidx html
17 NFIP Regulations NON-COMPLIANCE Failure to enforce an ordinance 1.) Reclassification under the Community Rating System (CRS) 2.) Probation Policy holders pay additional $50 premium during this period 3.) Suspension Community no longer in NFIP
18 NFIP Regulations SANCTIONS FOR NON-PARTICIPATION/SUSPENSION Flood Insurance will not be available Existing insurance policies not renewed No Federal grants or loans available for development within the SFHA No Federal disaster assistance available No Federal mortgage insurance or loan guarantees may g g g y be provided in SFHA
19 Knowing the Regulations Floodplain Regulations/Ordinances Must meet or exceed requirements specified in 44 CFR Must meet or exceed requirements of the Montana Administrative Rules.
20 Knowing the Regulations State Regulations MT CODE ANNOTATED (MCA) - STATUTES: laws passed by the legislature. All changes must go through the legislative process and be passed into law before they become effective. Montana Floodplain and Floodway Management Act - MCA Title 76, Chapter 5
21 Knowing the Regulations State Regulations ADMINISTRATIVE RULES of MT (ARMs): written and adopted by State agencies. The State agencies write rules in order to administer the laws over which the Legislature has given the agencies authority. Rules can be changed by going through the rule making procedure and do NOT go through the Legislative process. DNRC Floodplain Management Engineering Bureau - ARM Rule 36, Chapter 15 (adopted 12/31/1989)
22 The Montana Rules vs. NFIP Minimum Requirements Standard Montana Administrative Rules NFIP Minimum Requirements Freeboard 2 Feet No freeboard required Floodway Standards 1/2 foot Surcharge 1 Foot Surcharge Floodway Uses Mobile Home Applications Prohibits habitable structures with/in the floodway Requires all mobile homes to be elevated to the freeboard protection level. Allows structures in Floodway with documentation of zero-riserise Will allow for mobile home placed in and existing mobile home park to be elevated to 36 above the adjacent grade.
23 The Montana Rules ARM (6) The designated floodplain boundary is based on base flood elevations. The mapped floodplain l boundary may be used as a guide for determining whether property is within the designated floodplain, but the exact boundary shall be determined according to the base flood elevation. If the local administrator determines it is unclear whether property is in or out of the floodplain, l the local l administrator i t shall require the applicant to provide additional information which may include elevations obtained through a level survey performed by a PE or PLS.
24 Floodplain Management Roles & Responsibilities The FEDERAL ROLE (FEMA): Administers the NFIP through Regional Offices MT is in Region VIII (
25 Floodplain Management Roles & Responsibilities The FEDERAL ROLE (FEMA): Monitors community compliance with NFIP requirements. Provides guidance & assistance to State and community administrators. Provides information, training, and outreach. Helps review and adopt new maps and data.
26 Floodplain Management Roles & Responsibilities The STATE ROLE (DNRC): Enable communities with the legal authorities needed to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations. Establish minimum State regulatory standards consistent with the NFIP. Provide program and technical assistance to participating local governments. Coordinate activities of various State agencies that affect Coordinate activities of various State agencies that affect the NFIP.
27 Floodplain Management Roles & Responsibilities The COMMUNITY ROLE: Local adoption and enforcement of floodplain management regulations meeting or exceeding the minimum NFIP criteria. Require floodplain development permits for development within the 1-percent-annual-chance flood inundation area (aka Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) or 100-year floodplain). Additional requirements per 44 CFR 60.3.

41 DNRC Technical Resources Introduction Since the DNRC offers complimentary engineering technical support to the NFIP communities, there arose a need dto provide technical resources for the consulting sectors. The technical resources that have been developed by the DNRC are basic guidelines to help explain some of the more complex tasks in the floodplain process. Some sections of these documents have become dated and being updated, therefore they should be considered DRAFT documents.
42 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines Guidelines For Water Course Surveys In Undesignated or Zone A Flood Zones This can be found at the DNRC Floodplain Website
43 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines The document is intended to describe the minimum topographic requirements needed in order to construct a reasonably reliable hydraulic model. The process described within the document is only intended for use on limited reaches of the water course. The document also outlines submittal requirements.
44 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines Each site is unique and can pose distinct problems. It is important for the landowner, surveyor, and the engineer to review the proposed project to insure that everyone understands the scope of the survey. A site visit by all parties will insure all of the features needed to construct a reliable model are surveyed.
45 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines
46 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines
47 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines Special attention should be taken at abrupt channel constrictions and expansions. Equal Distance Between Both Point Where Contraction Begins Direction of Flow Point Where Contraction Ends Edge of Floodplain
48 DNRC Technical Resources Surveying Guidelines The document : Discusses the level of data and documentation that must be submitted in order for DNRC review the project. Provides examples of the format that should be used when submitting the data. Failure to submit all of the required data, in the proper format, may result in DNRC review delays.
