FEMA conducting reconnaissance surveys

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is preparing new coastal studies and risk analysis for Erie and Ottawa Counties in Ohio. The engineering firm Risk Assessment Mapping and Planning Partners (RAMPP), a joint venture between Dewberry, URS, and ESP, and its subcontractors are performing land use reconnaissance surveys for these new studies.

While in the field, engineers will make every effort to stay on public land and right-of-ways; however, it may be necessary from time to time for the engineers to enter upon privately owned property for short periods of time to gather survey information. Should this occur, an employee from a contracting firm assigned to your county will make every attempt possible to contact the homeowner in advance and seek permission. The field crews will be in and around the area from April 14-19. 

The engineers will respect the homeowner's property and will not interfere with their use of it. Upon request, the engineers will identify themselves by driver's license and this letter of introduction.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, contact the FEMA Region V Regional Project Officer Ken Hinterlong at 312 408-5529 or Stuart Williamson, the RAMPP Task

Order Manager at 703 849-0295.
