IFSMA Creates Training Modules for Iowa Communities
The Iowa State Chapter of the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) was the recipient of the ASFPM National 2014 Tom Lee State Award for Excellence in Floodplain Management. The award was made during the 2014 annual conference in June, based on two of four training modules the Iowa Floodplain & Stormwater Management Association (IFSMA) developed under contract with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR): the CRS Toolkit for Iowa Communities and an Iowa Flood Response Toolkit.
Since the award and annual conference, IFSMA has completed two additional training modules – one is to assist Delegated Communities in fulfilling their responsibilities in administering their communities’ floodplain ordinances and the other is an updated Desk Reference Manual.
All four training modules are available on the IFSMA website: www.Iowafloods.org.
