My name is Ferrin Affleck and I am part of the Lower Boise Watershed Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) Project Team, working with the Strategic Alliance for Risk Reduction (STARR II), a contractor for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This email is being sent to you as a status update for work completed on this project as of October 23, 2017. Detailed status updates like this are sent quarterly and include the overall project status, changes to the scope or schedule of the project, and a detailed overview of the individual technical tasks associated with the project.

Project History
The State of Idaho identified the Lower Boise Watershed as a priority for FEMA's Risk MAP program. The State determines its priorities based on population at risk to hazards, recent events, and community interest. FEMA, State, and Local stakeholders participated in Risk MAP Discovery Meetings held on June 7 and 8, 2011 where community concerns were identified. These concerns were captured in the Risk MAP Discovery Report and delivered to the communities in the watershed. After the Discovery Meetings, community concerns were researched and analyzed, in order to develop a scope of work that includes updates to the communities' regulatory flood maps and Multi-hazard Risk Assessments based on community-identified resilience needs. Multiple partners are involved in this effort. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Walla Walla District is primarily responsible for Engineering, STARR II is primarily responsible for updates to the regulatory flood maps, and University of Idaho is primarily responsible for Risk Assessments.
