Santa Clara River and Tributaries Physical Map Revision

Description:
BakerAECOM will incorporate the Santa Clara River study data (HDR study), process the Santa Clarita study as a LOMR, and incorporate the USACE-LA study data along tributaries to the Santa Clara River.


Open Pacific Coast Study

Description:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is performing detailed coastal engineering analyses and mapping of the Pacific coast of California. The analysis and mapping will revise and update the flood and wave data for the Los Angeles County Flood Insurance Study report and Flood Insurance Rate Map panels along the open coast. A kick-off meeting was conducted on December 6 and 7, 2011. Materials from this meeting are available from the Project Documents below.


Letter of Map Revision

Description:

A Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) is a determination, which reflects an official revision to an effective National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) map. LOMRs are issued in place of the physical revision and republication of the effective map. A LOMR may change flood insurance risk zones, floodplain and/or floodway boundary delineations, planimetric features, and/or Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) or flood depths. The LOMR becomes effective on the date shown on the determination document.

The appeals process for LOMRs includes a formal notification of the change and requires that it be published in the local newspaper and Federal Register as soon as possible. Additionally, the appeal process requires that LOMRs are available for public review.  As a result, the LOMRs listed on the Letter of Map Revision page have been made available for public review and comment. Any comments supported by scientific or technical data should be forwarded to your community’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Contact information for the CEO and Floodplain Administrator (FPA) are generally available on the community websites. Links to the community websites appear on the County pages.


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
  • September 26, 2012 - Lawndale, California
  • September 27, 2012 - Los Angeles, California
The final Discovery Report is available in the project documents listed below.

Ballona Creek Physical Map Revision

Description:
BakerAECOM will perform a 2-D flood risk study in the eastern area of the Ballona Creek watershed, which includes the Park Mesa Heights study area. The study will incorporate local hydrology data and local storm sewer data. Preliminary products will be prepared and released for the SE portion of the watershed only.


Las Virgenes Creek Study

Description:
BakerAECOM will perform a detailed H&H study for Las Virgenes Creek in Calabasas, CA, using locally-available rain gage data.
