            Forward NAI Floodplain and Stormwater
            Watershed-wide coordination is crucial to the
            success of flood risk reduction efforts. Local
            activities such as integrated implementation
            of regulations, combined efforts to maximize
            preservation or rehabilitation of naturally
            beneficial floodplain functions, and aggressive
            education of public and elected officials leading to
            adoption of No Adverse Impact policies can make
            the difference in these efforts. Please join the NAI,
            NBF, and Stormwater committees to discuss these
            and other innovative techniques for watershed-
            wide floodplain management.

            Floodproofing Committee
            This session will discuss some of the basic
            approaches to floodproofing or retrofitting a
            structure to make it less prone to flood damages.
            This will include all of the accepted floodproofing
            practices as well as other non-structural
            approaches to building protection. The session
            will also clarify the use of the term “Non-structural”
            as it applies to the Committee’s title and the
            methodologies associated with floodproof-
            ng. A discussion of building sciences related to
            floodproofing and applicable building codes
            will also be covered. The session will conclude
            with a group discussion of as many of the

     Wednesday, May 18

        impediments to floodproofing as time will allow,
        such as, loss of tax revenues to communities,
        poor communication of residual risks, and lack of
        incentives and disincentives.

        Bridging the Gap: Linking the             Breathitt
        National Flood Insurance Program
        and Mitigation Planning
        The NFIP and Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning
        are activities designed to reduce the affects of
        hazards on buildings and communities. Although
        some actions have been taken to ensure that
        the programs are acting in tandem, much more
        work needs to be done at the local level, so
        that communities gear their local ordinances to
        the amount of risk they face and protect their
        residences and businesses from damage. This
        presentation goes over the background of what
        has been done thus far under both the NFIP and
        Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning, and suggests
        ways that communities can close the gap between
        model ordinances and what needs to be done to
        reduce the risks from flooding to the residents of
        their community.

                  risk is a critical element in managing floodplains
                  and watersheds in the future. The recent re-

                  serve to invigorate this crucial concern.

           Association (NHMA) were the two organizations

           provide organizational leadership for the Alliance.
