DELAWARE RIVER BASIN COMMISSION MULTI-JURSIDICTIONAL FLOOD MITIGATION PLAN

Between mid-September 2004 and late July 2006, three major floods caused severe and repeated damage to thousands of structures, and disrupted the lives of many in the Delaware River Basin. The flooding was the worst experienced since the record flood of 1955.

This Plan is the result of a multi-agency and local partnership that formed following those three Delaware River main stem flood events. The purpose of the partnership was to capitalize on resources at the federal, state and county level and assist local municipalities in completing a regional flood hazard mitigation plan. The overall goal of this Flood Mitigation Plan is to make the Delaware River Basin more disaster resilient by reducing long-term risks to loss of life and property damage from flooding. the aim is to empower local communities to mitigate and support a sustainable community plan so that, when confronted by natural disaster, they will sustain fewer losses and recover more quickly.
