City of Alexandria, Virginia Floodplain Management Plan

2015

In 2012, the City of Alexandria, Virginia (by Council Resolution No. 2496) adopted the Northern Virginia Hazard Mitigation Plan Update and received credit under the federal Community Rating System (CRS) program to reduce flood risk and lower insurance premiums in its community. 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 by implementing different flood mitigation actions.

The Puget Sound is a coastal/inland waterway in Washington state, and is considered to be one of the most ecologically diverse ecosystems in North America. The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Puget Sound Watershed Management Assistance Program supports the protection and restoration of Puget Sound aquatic resources in areas threatened by development. These grants are given to local and tribal governments and special purpose districts. The grants support the development of land use management tools to manage and minimize the effects of population and economic growth on water quality and aquatic habitat.
