Nevada Comprehensive High Water Mark Campaign
In collaboration with the Nevada Division of Water Resources, this effort will develop a High Water Mark Campaign. This campaign will include identifying new locations for signs, developing a QR code and website page, installing signs, and conducting a targeted outreach campaign. The page will include information about flood history and a map of all the High Water Marks. The page will also link to Story Maps developed under previous Interagency efforts. The campaign will focus on rural and urban communities across Nevada.
Nevada Flood Risk Mitigation Workshops
The Nevada Flood Risk Mitigation Workshops project focuses on holding flood risk mitigation and potential grant opportunities workshops across NV. The workshops will focus on areas most prone to various types of flooding, considering vulnerable populations and under-served communities. The workshops will also include a summary of potential grant and funding options for implementing flood risk management projects. Workshops will showcase non-structural mitigation options.
Nevada Flood Risk Education & Outreach (Virtual Focus)
The Nevada Flood Risk Education & Outreach (Virtual Focus) project will provide virtual flood risk education support for teachers, a virtual Watershed University webinar series for Nevada floodplain management professionals, as well as other virtual engagements. Promotion of High Water Mark Signage placement and awareness, along with other flood risk education opportunities will empower communities to develop their own communication tools by facilitating exchange of information between professionals and the public.
As part of the Nevada Flood Risk Education & Outreach project, USACE and the Nevada Department of Water Resources have created games to serve as valuable resources for anyone interested in learning more about flooding.
Floodplain Management Plan for South Fork Dam, Elko County
This project will create a Floodplain Management Plan (FMP) for South Fork Dam in Elko County to promote shared responsibility for flood risk management, support risk reduction, and effectively communicate flood risks. Creation of this FMP will help South Fork Dam to quality for potential grant funding, which is needed for rehabilitation of this high hazard dam.
