As part of a Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP) Agreement with FEMA, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) under the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) accepted delegation and responsibility of the Map Mod program for the State of Georgia. As the 5-year national effort comes to an end, so is Georgia’s Flood Map Modernization program, which is providing updated, easily accessible Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps for 159 counties and over 530 municipalities.
Georgia EPD is facilitating the implementation of FEMA’s Risk MAP Program through its Georgia Flood M.A.P. (Mapping, Assessment & Planning) program. This will provide direct management and support of regulatory, engineering, and mapping activities within the State of Georgia. One project under this important program is the Upper Chattahoochee River Basin Mapping Project. The primary focus is on a 107-mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River from Buford Dam to Coweta County, which included Gwinnett County and the City of Sugar Hill.
