NFIP Basic’s information will be provided by FEMA’s Barb Fitzpatrick, and the State Floodplain Manager, Kathy Holder. We will have a special speaker from Colorado’s Department of Transportation Brian Varrella, CDOT’s Hydraulics Unit Lead.  Brain’s topic is highlighted below. Please plan on attending this important training.


Instructor: Brian K. Varrella, PE, CFM, Hydraulics Unit Lead

Description: State Departments of Transportation are at the forefront of public safety, economic vitality, and technological innovation.  Challenges created by complex geometric challenges, short timelines and critical-path permitting processes can delay project delivery at a high cost to our taxpaying public.  The best way for us to keep the nation moving is to leverage every opportunity to innovate, and to collaborate with our public and private partners at every opportunity.  Region 4 of the Colorado Department of Transportation is embarking on new operating procedures to streamline compliance with the floodplain standards of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), including mobile field data collection, 2-dimensional hydraulic analysis, and partnering with other state and federal agencies to reduce permit application time and cost.  This brief session will discuss the roots of public safety in the standards of the NFIP, and provide a path through local agency permitting endorsed by both the USDOT and FHWA. State Departments of Transportation are at the forefront of public safety, economic vitality, and technological innovation.  Challenges created by complex geometric challenges, short timelines and critical-path permitting processes can delay project delivery at a high cost to our taxpaying public.  The best way for us to keep the nation moving is to leverage every opportunity to innovate, and to collaborate with our public and private partners at every opportunity.  Region 4 of the Colorado Department of Transportation is embarking on new operating procedures to streamline compliance with the floodplain standards of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), including mobile field data collection, 2-dimensional hydraulic analysis, and partnering with other state and federal agencies to reduce permit application time and cost.  This brief session will discuss the roots of public safety in the standards of the NFIP, and provide a path through local agency permitting endorsed by both the USDOT and FHWA.
