A floodplain administrator is a person responsible for enforcing local floodplain management regulations and ensuring compliance with state and federal laws related to floodplain management.
Floodplains are areas of land adjacent to rivers, streams, and other waterways that are prone to flooding. Floodplain management is the process of regulating land use in these areas to minimize the risk of flood damage to people and property. The floodplain administrator plays a crucial role in this process by ensuring that development and construction in floodplains comply with local and federal regulations.
