Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) require communities and organizations to develop hazard mitigation plans to be eligible for FEMA grant assistance before and after a disaster. Hi-Desert Water District is currently in the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan and would like the community’s input. 

Please take a brief moment to complete the survey below and review a portion of the draft update, which will help the District move forward with the plan’s progress.

Comments to the update can be submitted HERE.

Once the plan is updated, the updated Plan will be reviewed/approved by the Hi-Desert Water District Board of Directors and then by FEMA. 

The primary purpose of Mitigation Planning is to develop sustainable, self-reliant, disaster-resistant communities.  Mitigation planning is the process of estimating the impact a natural, man-made, and/or a technological disaster may have on the urban (built) environment and identifying short-term and long-term actions that will result in the elimination and/or reduction of loss of life and property, environmental damage, and disruption of governmental, social, and economic activities.
