Local Levee Partnership Team Fact Sheet - Analysis and Mapping Procedures for Non-Accredited Levees
In 2013, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) released a new approach to analyzing and mapping non-accredited levees, which can be found at http://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/33587?id=7841. The Local Levee Partnership Team (LLPT) fact sheet provides information about LLPTs, which serves as the key stakeholder engagement and data gathering mechanism of the approach. The primary function of the LLPT is to provide feedback, additional data and other input about the levee system in question. FEMA’s role will be to listen and gather the necessary information to effectively analyze and map the flood hazards in the area landward of the levee. This fact sheet also provides a detailed levee process workflow graphic depicting the various steps to analyzing accredited, provisionally accredited, and non-accredited levees and indicating frequency of stakeholder engagement activities.
