The “Know Your Line: Be Flood Aware” High Water Mark initiative, created by FEMA and seven other Federal agencies, helps communities remind residents of major local floods and encourage residents to prepare for the next one. Participating communities post high water mark signs in prominent places, hold a high profile launch event to unveil the signs, and conduct ongoing education to build local awareness of flood risk and motivate people to take action.
