This statute contains information on floodplain assessment and flood prevention measures required by the Department of Natural Resources. All facilities that are owned or financed by the state, or constructed on state lands, must take active steps to prevent and minimize flood hazards and maintain the state's eligibility for flood insurance. Upon receipt of sufficient data and maps from the Department or a federal agency, local governments are asked to promulgate and implement effective flood plain management regulations and other flood plain management practices.
