Floodplain Management Plan

The Comprehensive Floodplain Management Plan (FMP) is an overall strategy of programs, projects, and measures aimed at reducing the adverse impacts of flood hazards for Los Angeles County unincorporated areas. The FMP identifies and addresses the impacts caused by flood hazards and provides specific mitigation measures to help protect the properties and their occupants. LA County adopted its most recent FMP in June 2021. The National Flood Insurance Program requires LA County to update its FMP every five years.

Development of the FMP was guided through the efforts of a Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is comprised of representatives from local government, non-profit groups, businesses, and members of the general public. The Steering Committee met about once per month when the FMP was being updated in 2020. The Steering Committee meets annually to review and provide input on the FMP Annual Progress report.
