FEMA Expands Its Reinsurance Program to Manage Future Flood Risk

Continuing the practice of resiliency and protection against future floods, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today its 2018 reinsurance placement for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Reinsurance increases the NFIP’s flood claims-paying ability by transferring a portion of the NFIP’s potential losses to the private reinsurance markets. Expanding on its inaugural placement, which occurred last year, FEMA transferred $1.46 billion of the NFIP’s financial risk to the private reinsurance market. This Reinsurance Agreement is effective from January 1, 2018, to January 1, 2019, with 28 private reinsurance companies.

Revised 2018-1 Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance

The Yavapai County Flood Control District has prepared a revised 2018-1 Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance to replace its existing 2010-1 Ordinance, at the behest of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Arizona Department of Water Resources, and the Arizona National Flood Insurance Program Coordinator’s office. As part of maintaining good standing in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the District occasionally needs to update its Ordinance that regulates development within floodplains. Most of the changes in this Ordinance update reflect language changes to align it with Arizona State Statues and to better match the State Model Ordinance. There are some general ‘housekeeping’ items that are being corrected in the Ordinance language, as well, for sake of clarification.

With updated floodplain maps being published by FEMA in March 2018, the Flood Control District and its governing Board have been requested to review, update, approve and have effective a new Ordinance prior to March 1st, 2018. The Arizona NFIP coordinator’s office and Director of ADWR are aware of these revisions and find them to satisfy the requirements of the Ordinance update.

Per Section 7.2 of the existing Ordinance, Public Notice has been published in the Prescott Daily Courier and the Verde Independent on December 3-6th, 2017 to announce a formal hearing and potential approval on January 3, 2018. A courtesy hearing, held on December 20th, 2017 in Cottonwood, is intended to better inform the public of the impending revisions, but no action will be taken at this hearing. A marked-up copy of the existing Ordinance is provided as an attachment, to make clear just what has changed from the currently effective Ordinance. Copies of the Ordinance are available to the public for viewing in either Cottonwood or Prescott Flood Control District Offices.
