For Homeowners and Buyers who have Properties within the 100 Year Floodplain
With an increasing number of major flood events dominating the headlines, it’s easy for homeowners to get overwhelmed by the enormity of the problem and think there is nothing they can do to protect themselves.
It’s one of the reasons why the national Association of State Floodplain Managers created ReduceFloodRisk.org, an interactive website that aims to demystify flood mitigation for the general public so they can understand their flood risk and make informed decisions about the specific steps they can take to better protect their most valuable assets.
