Regulatory Program

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has established rules and requirements to address the diverse issues that encompass flood insurance and flood hazard mitigation. Clark County and the incorporated communities within the County have adopted the Revised Uniform Regulations for the Control of Drainage in accordance with state statutes. These regulations are designed to protect the health, safety, and welfare of residents within the community from the hazards associated with flooding. The regulations provide the minimum regulatory control necessary to:

  1. promote comprehensive floodplain management,
  2. require safe flood-prone area development,
  3. foster sound development policies and construction procedures, and
  4. reduce storm water runoff damage to public and private property.

By meeting and exceeding the NFIP requirements, the regulations ensure that the residents of Clark County and incorporated areas are eligible for flood insurance that is available from the federal government. Additionally, all participating communities are eligible for a higher federal match for disaster assistance in the event of a flood.
