The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Flood Risk Management Program (FRMP) works across the agency to focus the policies, programs, and expertise of USACE toward reducing overall flood risk. This includes the appropriate use and resiliency of structures such as levees and floodwalls, as well as promoting alternatives when other approaches reduce the risk of loss of life, reduce long-term economic damages to the public and private sector, and improve the natural environment. The Albuquerque District Flood Risk Management Program is your local representative of the Corp’s National Flood Risk Management Program.
FRMP Program Goals:
- Providing current and accurate floodplain information to the public and decision makers,
- Identifying and assessing flood hazards posed by aging flood damage reduction infrastructure,
- Improving public awareness and comprehension of flood hazards and risk,
- Integrating flood damage and flood hazard reduction programs across local, state and Federal agencies, and
- Improving capabilities to collaboratively deliver and sustain flood damage reduction and flood hazard mitigation services to the nation.
