Iowa State University Extension, in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, has created a new series of educational web-based videos about all things flood-related: floodplains, flood risk, and basic floodplain management principles. The Flooding in Iowa Project divides the subject of flooding into five categories:

  • Introduction to the National Flood Insurance Program
  • Understanding Flooding
  • Floodplain Mapping
  • Floodplain Regulation
  • Flood Insurance

The videos are available online at the ISU Extension website:


The website also includes a Frequently Asked Questions section, and links to other flood-related resources.
