Is your home or business at risk for flooding? If so, come learn about ways to reduce your flood risk. You are invited to participate in a workshop for the general public being offered by the Pennsylvania Silver Jackets team. This workshop will provide information on different types of flood reduction measures from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Nonstructural Committee. The discussion will include topics such as elevating buildings, wet and dry flood proofing structures, and relocation/acquisition. Federal and state agency representatives will be on hand to discuss other floodplain management topics, such as the National Flood Insurance Program, Community Rating System, and other grant programs available to property owners to reduce their flood risk.
If you have any questions regarding the workshop, please contact Jason Stick, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, at (410) 962-3475 or Jason.T.Stick@usace.army.mil. We hope to see you at the workshop.
