In 2003, the Legislature of the State of
Arkansas enacted legislation in Act 754 of 2003 to require that
local communities with floodplain management ordinances:
1. appoint a floodplain manager to administer local floodplain
management laws, and
2. obtain accreditation of the floodplain administrator through
the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission
The purpose of the legislation was to make sure that local
floodplain management regulations were properly administered,
thereby reducing the likelihood of future flood damages to
property owners in Arkansas.
