Advanced Floodplain Management Concepts: G-194.1 Local Floodplain Manager Roles and Responsibilities | Vince Seijas
This module reviews the major roles of the floodplain manager who serves as a coordinator, regulator, educator, and planner. Participants learn about the organizations and individuals that need to be coordinated with, recordkeeping practices, regulatory responsibilities, tools for handling violations, and methods for providing information on insurance implications and mitigation planning.

Flood Modeling with ArcGIS | Corey Gens, ESRI
In this session we will discuss updates to ArcHydro, other methods for modeling inundation, and updates to the National Water Model. This session will be technically focused on how to use ArcGIS to model flood inundation and share that information out with organizations of interest. It will also include updates on the current state of ArcHydro and future planned updates.

Using ICPR4 to Quantify Flood Risk for Land-Locked Systems | Pete Singhofen, P.E., Streamline Technologies, Inc.
This workshop delves into the challenging problems of quantifying flood risks of land-locked stormwater management systems, where percolation, leakage and evapotranspiration are the only outfalls. Topics such as groundwater – surface water interaction, confining layers, leakage through confining layers, saturated horizontal groundwater flow, unsaturated vertical groundwater flow, physically-based infiltration methods, vertically stratified soil columns, importance of directly connected impervious areas, and drain wells are discussed. Numerous real world examples are presented with detailed descriptions of model setup and interpretation of results.
