APPENDIX D - EIGHT-STEP NARRATIVE FOR FLOODPLAINS (EXECUTIVE ORDER 11988 AND 44 CFR, PART 9)
Executive Order 11988 (Floodplain Management) requires federal agencies “to avoid to the extent possible the long-and short-term adverse impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of the floodplain and to avoid direct or indirect support of floodplain development wherever there is a practicable alternative.” FEMA’s implementing regulations are at 44 CFR Part 9, which includes an eight-step decision-making process for compliance with this part. This eight-step process is applied to the proposed City of Pasadena Street Drainage and Flood Mitigation Project since the project is located partially within the 100-year floodplain of Vince Bayou and Little Vince Bayou.
