Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) has received a $125,000 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) toward the development of a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan.
EVMWD’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan will address hazards such as earthquakes, fires, floods, drought, and more as it assesses risk and prioritizes mitigation actions. The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan will also utilize information from a recent seismic vulnerability study and drought contingency plan completed by EVMWD, as well as a groundwater sustainability plan that is currently underway.
“We are grateful to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for their support in this important project,” said EVMWD General Manager Greg Thomas. “The hazard mitigation plan will allow us to proactively reduce the risks posed by natural disasters, ensuring that our customers have uninterrupted access to our essential services even in the case of disaster.”
“By taking strategic steps to prepare for disaster, EVMWD lessens the financial impact that emergencies have on the District and its ratepayers,” stated EVMWD Board President Andy Morris. “The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is one of the many ways we ensure that customers have uninterrupted access to safe, clean, and affordable water at all times.”
