UDFCD provides an incentive program, called the Maintenance Eligibility Program (MEP), to encourage responsible design in developer-initiated floodplain modification projects. At the request of the local government, the Floodplain Management Program reviews and comments on proposed development projects. Projects approved through the MEP process are eligible for UDFCD maintenance. Projects must meet the criteria contained in the USDCM as well as the Guidelines for Maintenance Eligibility. Regional Detention Basins also require that a Maintenance Site Plan is prepared in accordance with the Guidelines for UDFCD Maintenance Site Plan.
