Floodplain Management

National Flood Insurance Program

The IDWR floodplain manager coordinates the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in Idaho. Management involves reviewing city ordinances created to deal with floodplain problems, assisting communities to adopt floodplain ordinances and qualify for the NFIP, which makes it possible for citizens to qualify for FEMA flood insurance.

The IDWR floodplain manager also helps communities in planning for floods, conducts training of floodplain protection and reviews work done within floodplains to ensure that it will not cause an increase in flood levels if flooding occurs.
