Flood Management Program

Working across agencies to ensure the safety of Philadelphians by managing flood risks and adapting to a changing climate.


The Flood Management Program is the City's coordinated approach to flood risk management. The Flood Risk Management Task Force (FRMTF), a cross-departmental coalition, oversees the program.

The Task Force works to:

  • Educate the public about flood hazards.
  • Develop regulations and risk mapping for flood hazards.
  • Prioritize flood concerns in City decision-making.
  • Inform smart land development.
  • Improve the City’s flood resilience through mitigation actions, programs, and resources.

Our work supports residents, businesses, developers, and our flood resilience partners.
