Through the National Flood Insurance Program, FEMA establishes minimum design and construction standards for participating communities. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection establishes even higher standards for roads, buildings, and other structures built within and near flood hazard areas. However, both FEMA and NJDEP rely on flood mapping that is based on past flood data that does not anticipate future conditions resulting from a changing climate.
