November 2017

Ripple Effects: Colorado’s Water Plan is a 2017 update on implementation of the plan that was published by the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) in 2015 - outlining two years of progress. Three main values are intended to guide the document: a productive economy, especially in the agricultural and tourism sectors; efficient water infrastructure; and a strong environment with healthy watersheds and wildlife. Many of the water plan’s objectives and strategies focused on climate change impacts to these focal sectors, and have been implemented according to this progress report.

Prince George's County, Maryland Repetitive Loss Area Analysis Report

2014

In 2014, Prince George’s County, a Class 5 Community Rating System (CRS) community, prepared a repetitive loss area analysis (RLAA) report through its Department of Environmental Protection. CRS is a voluntary program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under the National Flood Insurance Program that allows participating local governments to earn discounts on their residents’ flood insurance premiums. Prince George's County commissioned the report to inform the development of its hazard mitigation plan due to an increase in the number of repetitive loss properties in the county.
