FEMA to Conduct Coastal Flood Studies in So. Md. in Nov.

Surveyors May Need to Enter Privately Owned Property

CALIFORNIA, Md. (October 25, 2010)—The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is preparing new flood studies for southern Maryland and surveyors will be conducting field work from Nov. 1-10. The Coastal Field Work for FEMA flood studies will occur in St. Mary's, Calvert, Charles, Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties.

Surveyors may need to enter privately owned property for short periods of time to gather survey information, according to a press release from the St. Mary's County government. "The engineering firm, Risk Assessment Mapping and Planning Partners (RAMPP), will make every attempt possible to contact homeowners in advance and obtain permission for access. Upon request, surveyors will identify themselves by driver's license and documentation from the engineering firm."
