Floodplain Management

The OWRB prevents and mitigates the catastrophic effects of flooding disasters in Oklahoma through coordination of the state's participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Through partnerships with federal, state, and local entities, the OWRB provides guidance to communities in meeting the requirements to participate in the NFIP, including the development and enforcement of floodplain regulations in designated flood hazard areas, and the training and certification of local floodplain administrators. More than 400 Oklahoma communities currently participate in the NFIP, which significantly reduces disaster recovery costs and allows citizens to purchase flood insurance.
