Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA) was adopted by the Federal government and, among other things, requires local authorities to prepare a Hazards Mitigation Plan (HMP) which will be utilized to protect citizens, critical facilities, infrastructure, private property and the environment from natural hazards through varying means, including increasing public awareness and identifying resources available for risk reduction and loss prevention.

The West Valley Water District (WVWD) is inviting public review and comment on its Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) through Friday, June 11, 2021.  The HMP helps communities by assessing vulnerabilities and identifying actions to reduce those risks.  Public feedback is the final step.   WVWD with an adopted and a FEMA-approved HMP is eligible for available mitigation funds before and after the next disaster strikes.

 

Comments and questions can be submitted to WVWD’s Operations Manager, Joanne Chan, via email at jchan@wvwd.org.
