Inland Scoping Schedule for Michigan Counties

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducts scoping meetings to determine the riverine flood mapping update needs. These efforts are combined with the lake-wide coastal flood hazard mapping effort with the outcomes constituting the first basin-wide update of water-level statistics and flood hazard data compiled by the United States government for the Great Lakes in 25 years.

Under these riverine scoping efforts, a key phase in this study process is FEMA’s consultation with local communities through the conduct of a scoping meeting and the collection of data. FEMA uses these scoping meetings and follow-up conversation to collect information that will contribute to a better understanding of local flood risk conditions. A second purpose of this outreach is to provide a venue for sharing information related to study methodology and schedules.
