1 GTM North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program RFQ Pre-Submittal Conference

2 State Response / Strategies Strategy 1 - Establishment of a statewide program to acquire, process and disseminate current, accurate, and detailed elevation data, flood hazard studies, reports, and maps (hard copy and digital). Strategy 2 - Establishment of North Carolina as a Cooperating Technical State (CTS) through the FEMA Cooperating Technical Partners Program. This designation would establish North Carolina as the custodian of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps.

3 Program Objectives and Deliverables New / up-to-date / improved Flood Insurance Rate Maps: Study on a Basin by Basin Issued on a Countywide Basis New DFIRMs (new H&H studies) for all North Carolina completed September 2008 New detailed, accurate elevation data (LiDAR) Reduction of time needed for post-preliminary review and appeals process for new FIRM maps (6 months) Better notification and dissemination of information about new and revised maps

4 Program Objectives and Deliverables - continued On-going program for updating and maintaining FIRMs Better equipped and informed post-event mitigation activities as a result of updated flood risk maps Cost-effective data sharing through the implementation and operation of an inter-operable Geographic Information System Internet web application providing cost-effective upload, download, management, and dissemination of digital data and maps (24 x 7 / free access) Implement a real-time flood inundation and forecast mapping system (flood warning)

5 Key Components of the New Maps - Production Base Data + Topography + Flood Hazard Data = Digital FIRM

6 Floodplain Mapping 2007 Greensboro DFIRM

7 Programmatic / Operations - Priniciples Leverage efficient and effective technology for more efficient digital / map modernization for new maps / future updates (GIS, LIDAR, etc.) Collect complete elevation data coverage in North Carolina Study as many miles of stream as need and possible (1 sq. mile basin threshold / efficient limited-detail approach) Requirement for hard copy (snapshot) and digital (living) version different purposes, valued products for each Emphasize / Establish digital data sharing with counties / municipalities Leverage program deliverables to defray the overall cost and further implement other (e.g. flood warning) Strong, upfront community involvement and buy-in Documentation is Required (Business Rules and Procedures) No new wheels Share everything / Co-opetition

8 NCFMP Base Data

9 NCFMP Current Study Status

10 Current Program / Operations - Structure NCFPMP has established a distributed program structure utilizing multiple agencies as leads: NCFPMP Overall program/policy development and management, contractual management, operations management, H&H analysis, scoping, outreach, post-preliminary NCGS (lead partner) Elevation acquisition, elevation quality control (3 rd party, independent surveyors FEMA Overall CTP partner, concurrence on policy and maps, postpreliminary (regulatory responsibilities), financial support Dewberry H&H concurrence review, DFIRM and DFIRM database concurrence review, community mapping needs / scoping support, program and policy support CTS Committee policy / program direction (advisory), program / product feedback, inter-agency coordination and collaboration

11 Integrated Hazard Risk Management

12 IHRM Vision Expand from the one-dimension of flood and other hazard identification Develop data and tools to enable communities to estimate natural hazard risks on a routine basis Provide a means to communicate these risks to the decision makers, stakeholders, homeowner. What are your hazards? What are your vulnerabilities? How do you define risk? Use this information to drive decision making and mitigation efforts

13 IHRM Vision Hazard Data Hazard Mapping Mitigation Actions Built Environment Data Critical Infrastructure Building Data Potential Damages First Floor Elevations $

14 Analytical / Communication Tool Web based or stand alone Identifies and displays all natural hazards on the parcel and/or statewide level for: Riverine Flooding Coastal Flooding Storm Surge Coastal Erosion Wildfire Dam Failure Levee Failure Tornado High Hazard Winds Earthquake Landslides Snow, Ice Hail Drought IHRM

15 IHRM CIKR Vulnerabilities Critical Infrastructure / Key Resources (18 DHS Sectors) Determine CI/KR assets (what, location) Hazards impacted Interdependencies Failure thresholds What CI/KR data is needed in an event? Built environment Collect location for all buildings > 1,000 sq ft (footprint area) Data conflation from statewide parcel dataset Construction type Building value Determine/estimate FFE, LAG, HAG from available resources Socioeconomic data

16 Map Modernization Plan FY

17 Projected Annual Costs and Funding Request Program Element FY 09 FY 10 FY 11 FY 12 FY 13 Total Map Maintenance Funding Requirement $13.93 $16.77 $18.93 $19.67 $20.43 $95.92 State Cost Share $3.23 $4.19 $4.73 $4.92 $5.11 $18.93 Total Requested FEMA Funding $17.16 $12.57 $14.20 $14.75 $15.32 $56.56

18 Map Maintenance Scope of Work Elevation Acquisition Elevation Data Maintenance Plan in Development Currently Incorporating Third Party Hydrologic and Hydraulic Modeling Continuing Scoping Process with Communities and Eliminating Previously Redelenieated Streams DFIRM Panel Production ~8% (1:500 or 1:1,000 scale) DFIRM Database / FIS Reports Engineering & Inventory IHRM Data Depth Grids, Additional Profiles Information Technology (FMIS) Transition from FMIS to AHMIS (e.g. Flood Warning, Spill Modeling, Technological hazards, HAZUS integration) Multi-Hazard Mapping Portal Local and Federal WM services data Engineering and Inventory Data upload and download LOMCs submittal, processing, mapping application Real Time Flood Forecasting and Inundation Mapping Phase II (Cape Fear, Roanoke, Yadkin, etc)

19 RFQ Highlights / Contractual Approach NC FPMP intends to award one to two IDIQs to a private sector engineering firm Selection based on demonstrated competence and qualifications (G.S ) 2 year contract with three / 1 year renewal options No joint ventures allowed / Prime Firms Letter of qualifications due by 4:30 P.M.
