Floodplains are the low, flat lands adjacent to streams, rivers, and lakes that flood frequently. They are considered part of a health stream and are designed to hold in flood waters, as well as support a variety of natural resources and provide natural flood and erosion control.
Floodplain management is the operation of a community program of preventive and correct measures to reduce risk of current and future flooding, resulting in a more resilient community.
