South Sioux City Flooding

The Department of Natural Resources Floodplain Section handles floodplain management matters for the state of Nebraska. Our section is responsible for coordinating an overall program aimed at addressing the wise use of land that is subject to flooding. We accomplish this by:

  • Providing technical assistance to communities, state agencies, federal agencies, and the public on floodplain management
  • Identifying and delineating floodplains and floodways
  • Providing state coordination for the National Flood Insurance Program
  • Providing technical assistance and coordinating federal funding to communities for the development of local hazard mitigation plans
