Projects listed in the current Pre-disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan were recently reviewed. This plan was approved by all county jurisdictions in 2015 and reviewed and updated again on June 28, 2019 to apply for and receive mitigation grant funding through FEMA to bring Margaret Phillips Lake Dam, a Category 1 dam, into compliance with Georgia Safe Dam Standards rather than breach the dam as originally proposed in the 2015 Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Review shows significant progress made over the past year of implementing and completing the projects listed in the plan.
All action steps in the unincorporated county were reviewed. The following action steps were modified to reflect current conditions.
A copy of this plan is available here.
