They are studying!

2006: Lee Moore Wash Basin Management Study

2008: Mapping completed at $500,000 per year. No money available for any projects.
Maybe in 2009?

What about the "regulatory framework that promotes wise development of the area's floodplains"?
At this point, the County still permits development, just requires the permitee sign a covenant.
There are some exceptions for big developments

Note: The Flood Contol Dept. of the County contracts out studies although they have 83 employees--most of them hydrologists.

2007: Sheet Flood Mapping

Methods to Determine Sheet Flooding

Results: No new permits for building or improvments unless resident signs a Covenant that the County is not responsible for any damage from flooding.
