    The National Park Service has released a new illustrated version of the Guidelines on Flood Adaptation for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings. This version replaces an earlier, text-only version from November 2019. The text has been updated and edited, illustrations and photographs added, and case studies included.


    In addition to the Guidelines, a webinar is available to watch on-demand that provides information about why the NPS developed the Flood Guidelines and how they can be used.  Finally, a set of frequently asked questions explains how the Guidelines address flood risk, who can use the Flood Guidelines, how they can be used, and basic questions about Standards and Guidelines.
