Flood Risk and Floodplain Management
Flood Risk and Floodplain Management are complex challenges. The goal of the Nebraska Silver Jackets Program
is to enhance intergovernmental partnerships resulting in comprehensive
and sustainable solutions to Nebraska state flood risks.
and programs to address flood risk and floodplain management are housed
within a number of federal and state agencies; no single federal or
state agency has all the answers. Accordingly, public
communication on flood risk and floodplain management is dispersed
throughout multiple agencies.
website provides a collaborative approach amongst agencies to present
information from multiple agencies in a more comprehensive
format. Two series of pages have been developed:
Flood Risk – These pages are intended to
be used to understand and respond to the general risk of flooding
- Flood Response – These pages are intended to be used to understand and respond to an ongoing eminent threat of flooding
