Objectives of the FMP Update

Updating the Floodplain Management Plan to maintain a strong
Community Rating System (CRS) Class Rating

The CRS recognizes, encourages, and rewards communities for activities that:

  • Reduce and avoid flood damage to properties,
  • Conduct outreach about flood risks, and
  • Foster comprehensive floodplain management.

The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works updated its Floodplain Management Plan (FMP) with these objectives in mind. The FMP addresses all County unincorporated area flood hazards using FEMA’s Hazus Program customized for the County to communicate flood risks to our community.
