~ This week, KC Water presented the 2022 Annual Floodplain Management Plan Progress Report for the City of Kansas City, Missouri to local and federal officials. The report is necessary for the City to remain in the National Flood Insurance Program, which provides flood insurance to property owners. It is also a federal requirement.

The Community Rating System (CRS) is used in the progress report and rates the City's actions on many factors such as flood prevention steps, infrastructure improvements in flood prone areas, public awareness and education efforts related to flooding, improving flood warning systems, and training emergency personnel for flood disaster situations. The latest year's CRS report and past reports can be found on the KC Water website at
