The individual and combined effects of federal programs on development in floodplains are identified. Based on those findings, ways in which the '201' Wastewater Treatment Works Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency can reduce floodplain development pressures are recommended. Major tasks in developing those recommendations were as follows: (1) Thirty-one case studies of the impact of federal programs on floodplain development were completed in the Southeast, West, and Midwest regions. Interviews with planning directors and other knowledgeable persons at the local government level provided the basic information; (2) Meetings with the EPA Regional Offices in Atlanta, Kansas City and Denver were held to review present methods for implementing floodplain policy related to '201' wastewater treatment facilities; (3) Federal programs which potentially can affect floodplain development were reviewed to identify the range of methods and approaches presently used to mitigate floodplain development pressures; and (4) Major decision points in the '201' Wastewater Treatment Works Program which can affect floodplain impacts were identified, based on a review of program regulations and guidance materials.
