Region VI - Amite Watershed

FEMA has prepared cursory flood risk assessment at a watershed level to support the review and validation of the flood hazard information shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). The Base Level Engineering approach uses high resolution ground elevation data, calculates high level flood flow estimations, and prepares hydraulic modeling to determine how natural water courses convey the calculated flood flows.  The Base Level Engineering produces estimated flood extents for a variety of flood events, including the 1% and 0.2% annual chance events.
