The Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GA DNR) has launched the Upper Chattahoochee River Basin Mapping Project (UCRB) that will assess and re-map flood risks along a 107-mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River Basin.
The project is being conducted through a joint effort involving GA DNR and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), with participation by county and municipal governments. Re-mapping is scheduled for completion in 2012, so that government agencies, residents and businesses throughout the upper Chattahoochee River region will have more up-to-date information about the flood risks, easily available online.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GA DNR) has launched the Coastal Counties Mapping Project that will re-map flood risks within nine counties in coastal Georgia. The project is being conducted through a joint effort involving GA DNR and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), with participation by county and municipal governments. Re-mapping consists of both riverine and coastal analyses and will be broken into two project schedules. The Physical Map Revision (PMR) for the riverine portion of the project is scheduled for completion in 2013. The PMR for the coastal portion of the project is scheduled for completion in 2015.

The Georgia DNR's goals during discvoery include:To work closely with communities within the watershed to better understand local flood risk, mitigation efforts, and other topics and spark watershed-wide discussions about increasing resilience to flooding.
During Discovery, GA DNR:
- - Supports communities within the watershed to develop a vision for - watershed’s future
- - Collects information from communities about their flooding history, and stormwater/ floodplain management activities
- - Uses all information gathered to determine which areas of the watershed require mapping, risk assessment, or mitigation planning assistance through a Georgia Flood M.A.P. project.
