Guide Helps Communities Realize Full Benefits of Floodplains

Besides reducing flood risks and losses, well-managed floodplains perform other beneficial functions that include maintaining habitat, enhancing water quality, and providing recreational opportunities. The Association of State Floodplain Managers and Coastal States Organization teamed up to develop an interactive, online Community Rating System (CRS) Green Guide, which highlights these benefits. This guide empowers communities to enhance their credits, encourages communities to join, and provides elementary and advanced information, and success stories.
