Orange County is in the process of updating its Floodplain Management Plan and as part of the planning process, Public Works will host a virtual public meeting on November 2nd at 5:30pm.
The public is encouraged to provide input on mitigation strategies that the County can implement to protect people and property from flood impacts. Sign up online to request online access to the meeting. The draft plan will be presented for review and comment.
Orange County’s Floodplain Management Plan (FMP) was last updated in 2017. The FMP is used to address flood hazard risks and vulnerabilities and to identify achievable mitigation actions to make our community safer and more resilient to flooding.
This plan assesses local capabilities to implement flood mitigation projects. It identifies a wide range of mitigation actions that the County can pursue to reduce flood risk and protect the people and property of Orange County. The plan also supports the County’s Community Rating System participation, which provides flood insurance policyholders in Orange County with a discount on their insurance premiums.
