Next meeting:

Thurs. Jan. 26, 2017 10 AM – Noon (lunch following)
RSVP to Teresa Patterson at
Urban Drainage and Flood Control District Offices, Board Room


We will discuss the response received from the CRS Task Force regarding our comment letter.  I’ve also asked Matt Buddie with FEMA to discuss the Flood Insurance letters that are going to be sent to all policy holders. Since the letters were not posted as PDFs on the FEMA website and therefore are difficult to utilize, Matt was able to get PDF copies of each of the letters that are currently available (Letter G is still being worked on).


See you next week and don’t forget to RSVP to Teresa for lunch!


Call in info:

 Use your microphone and speakers (VoIP) - a headset is recommended.

State CRS Activities

The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) is working with ISO on developing “Quick Applications” that would provide immediate credit for some CRS activities that are being done by the State and/or the Denver Urban Drainage and Flood Control District.  These would allow new CRS communities to earn credit for these activities immediately.

CASFM Comments on the CRS

The CASFM CRS Committee solicited comments from members concerning the CRS program. These comments were compiled and discussed at several committee meetings. The comments were approved by the CASFM Board in September 2008 and the final version of the comments was sent to the CRS Task Force on October 24, 2008. Read the CASFM CRS Comment Letter Here. ASFPM also sent suggestions to the CRS Task Force. Read the  ASFPM CRS Suggestions here.

Previous Training Information

The Elevation Certificate/Flood Insurance Workshop was held Thursday, April 30, 2009 at the City of Aurora.  The FEMA Elevation Certificate (EC) is an important administrative tool of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that is used by floodplain administrators, insurance agents, land surveyors, consulting engineers, CRS coordinators, and other government officials. The EC provides elevation information to ensure building compliance in the floodplain, to determine proper flood insurance premiums, and supports FEMA map change requests for Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA) and Letters of Map Revision based on Fill (LOMR-F). This workshop will provide an overview of the EC, how it’s utilized by the various users, and upcoming changes to the form. Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) continuing education credit will be offered.
