Project Name: Fremont General Investigation Flood Risk Management Feasibility Study
Location: Fremont, Nebraska
Authority: Lower Platte River and Tributaries - Resolution adopted by U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (September 28, 1994)
Partners: Lower Platte North Natural Resources District, City of Fremont, Village of Inglewood, Dodge County
Current Phase: Feasibility
The City of Fremont, Village of Inglewood and the Dodge County Industrial Park lie in the floodplain of the Platte River in eastern Nebraska. Fremont, adjacent Inglewood, and unincorporated areas of Dodge County are subject to the threat of ice-affected flooding, flooding from snowmelt runoff, and flooding from rainfall runoff from the Platte River. Flooding due to ice jams constitute the majority of the flood risk in the area.
Project Update: The Omaha District and study partners held an information meeting on Monday, July 24, 2017 at Christensen Field in Fremont to discuss potential nonstructural flood risk management solutions that could reduce the community’s flood risk and incidentally may reduce flood insurance premiums.
