In 1968, Congress created the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to help provide a means for property owners to financially protect themselves. Since standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding, it’s important to have protection from the floods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact the United States. San Joaquin County, California has been proactive in developing flood contingency and evacuation maps in the event that levees fail and cause flooding that threatens life and property. Partners in this effort include Reclamation Districts, local engineers, cities in San Joaquin county, and San Joaquin County.
