Various levels of decision making affecting settlement in flood plains are analyzed from the viewpoints of individuals seeking a residential location, individuals engaged in land development and construction activity, and individuals charged with forming and implementing public flood control policy at various levels of government. A conceptual model is presented of factors influencing how individuals select a residential location, react to flood experiences, and pressure for government help. Basic differences between the type of people who knowingly risk flood hazards and the type who move onto flood plains unaware of the danger are outlined.
