Merriam participates in the Community Rating System (CRS), which is a voluntary program of the NFIP. Through the CRS, Merriam is undertaking floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP floodplain management requirements. This earns reductions in our residents' flood insurance premiums, resulting in more affordable flood insurance.
By applying a whole community approach to floodplain management, the CRS contributes to community resilience, increased insurance coverage, public safety, and the protection of floodplain natural functions. These benefits are evident in participating communities and collectively nationwide.
