The Case Study

National Flood Insurance Program

The Situation

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) oversees the National Flood Insurance Program, which offers coverage to properties in communities that adopt certain floodplain management ordinances. FEMA asked GKY & Associates, Inc. to help them solve a major challenge – identifying which properties are situated within the regulatory floodplain to determine insurance eligibility.

The Solution

For more than 15 years, GKY&A has assisted FEMA in reviewing flood studies submitted by communities nationwide. This process often requires detailed review of hydrologic and hydraulic models, and entails precise compliance with FEMA requirements. We provide high accuracy even when fast turnarounds are required.

GKY has reviewed thousands of such studies for FEMA. Our expertise in hydrology and hydraulics ensures that the regulatory floodplain is accurately identified… helping those at risk of flood damage receive faster confirmation of insurance eligibility.
