Abstract: 

The objective of the Clatsop County coastal flood hazard project is to develop updated Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report for Clatsop County, Oregon (Figure 1-1). For this effort, the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) will be using newly acquired (2009) light detection and ranging data (lidar) to redelineate coastal and riverine flood hazards within Clatsop County, produce revised DFIRMs and a revised FIS report, and produce other mapping products useable at the local, state, and federal level for mitigation planning, risk analysis, and disaster response.
