Floodplain Management Plan 2020 Update

Los Angeles County is updating the Comprehensive Floodplain Management Plan (FMP) for LA County unincorporated areas.

The FMP is an overall strategy of programs, projects, and measures aimed at reducing the adverse impacts of flood hazards on the community. The FMP identifies and addresses the impacts caused by flood hazards and provides specific mitigation measures to help protect the properties and their occupants. LA County adopted its most recent FMP in 2016. The National Flood Insurance Program requires LA County to update its FMP every five years.

Development of the FMP is guided through the efforts of a Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is comprised of representatives from local government, non-profit groups, businesses, and members of the general public. The Steering Committee meets about once per month.

Make sure to visit this website often as we’ll be posting updates on the FMP’s progress. You can also obtain materials provided during Steering Committee meetings from this website.
