HUD has posted a video-based webinar to educate HUD recipients, applicants, and their partners on Floodplain Management and Wetlands Protection regulations. The video is nearly 1.5 hours long, but is very helpful if you think your project may have floodplain or wetland related impacts.
At SES, we have extensive experience working on housing projects where development is planned within existing mapped floodplains or wetlands. In some instances, the FEMA maps were modified to better reflect actual conditions on the ground. In other instances, we have helped work through the 8-step HUD process. For other projects with wetland impacts, we have performed wetland boundary delineation and successfully managed the permitting process.
