Floodplain Management

Floodplain management and flood damage prevention are key functions of any incorporated municipality. In River Bend this is accomplished through our Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance.

The regulations set forth in that Ordinance are consistently applied by the Zoning Administrator and Floodplain Manager (two of the functions of the Town Manager) and the Assistant Zoning Administrator (AZA) who also is a Certified Floodplain Manager. The AZA is responsible for all aspects of our floodplain management efforts and is the point of contact for citizens, builders, developers and other government regulators.
