Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP)
Next upcoming meeting:
Disaster planning steering committee to meet on January 23.
The East Orange County Water District (EOCWD) recently received a grant under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-109). This grant provides funding for EOCWD to plan and implement a hazard mitigation plan (HMP) to address natural disasters. The plan will be developed with significant public input and its development will be overseen by a steering committee.
We’re hopeful that through this hazard mitigation planning process, our residents will not only suggest ways that EOCWD can harden against disasters, but also think about ways our residents and their families can be better prepared.
We expect the HMP steering committee to meet approximately once per month over an estimated six-month period commencing in January 2020. The Steering Committee acts as an advisory body to the planning team which will assemble the plan.
