NC Flood Resiliency Blueprint

ESP is part of a team working on North Carolina’s Flood Resiliency Blueprint, a three-phase statewide initiative to develop an online decision support tool and associated planning to address flooding for communities in river basins. Representing the largest statewide flood mitigation investment in state history, the Blueprint was funded through a $20 million allocation to the Department of Environmental Quality Division of Mitigation Services from the North Carolina General Assembly.

When complete, the Blueprint will lead to a set of projects and funding strategies that the state and other government entities can implement to reduce flooding, mitigate the impacts of flooding when it does occur, and recover afterward. By making impacts from mitigation strategies clear, the Blueprint will help decisionmakers from the state level to individual communities make more informed choices when dealing with riverine flooding.
