HAZUS Flood Model Validation Project

The goal of the Association of State Floodplain Managers HAZUS Flood Model validation project was to assess the horizontal and vertical (flood depth) accuracy of the HAZUS generated floodplain boundary. To perform this assessment, ASFPM used the HAZUS-MH Flood Model and boundary delineation outputs and compared against detailed floodplain studies for three (3) pilot areas, which included the following:

* Roan Gully and Willow Creek, Harris County, TX
* Doby Creek and Mallard Creek, Mecklenburg County, NC
* Open and Bay Coastlines, Suffolk County, NY
