Santa Monica Bay Watershed Discovery

Description:
The Discovery process is the first step in determining whether a RiskMAP project is needed within the Santa Monica Bay Watershed.  The goal of the Discovery process is for FEMA to work more closely with communities and stakeholders to better understand the local flood risk and mitigation efforts and to encourage watershed-wide discussions about increasing resilience to flooding. The information exchanged between FEMA and the community during Discovery will improve our understanding of your flood hazard mapping, flood risk, mitigation planning, and communication needs.
Discovery Meetings for the Santa Monica Bay Watershed were held on the following dates:
  • September 25, 2012 - Calabasas, California
  • September 26, 2012 - Wilmington, California
