Check out new FCZD newsletter

The Chelan County Flood Control Zone District (FCZD) recently released its first newsletter. The goal of the annual newsletter is to not only update you on the FCZD and its projects but also pass along important safety reminders, information about ongoing projects and local resources.

Most recently, the FCZD also released its first progress report. The 2018 Annual Progress Report evaluates the steps the district is taking toward implementing flood hazard mitigation efforts in Chelan County. And it shows the steady progress the district continues to make.

The progress report details a variety of information, including flood events that occurred within the last year (one in the Colockum Basin in May 2018), changes in risk exposure within the planning area (the Cougar Creek Fire in the Mad River and Entiat River watersheds burned nearly 43,000 acres), and mitigation success stories, which are detailed in a story inside this newsletter.

The County also is making headway toward joining the Community Rating System (CRS). This program recognizes a community’s floodplain management activities that reduce or prevent flood damage. In exchange for implementing these activities, flood insurance policyholders living in the county’s unincorporated areas are awarded with a premium reduction. The Insurance Service Office conducted a CRS verification visit in August 2018, and we expect to join the CRS program in early 2020.

The May 2019 newsletter is available online.
