CMAP has developed urban and riverine flood susceptibility indexes (FSI) to identify priority areas across the region for flood mitigation activities. Locations highlighted in the FSI may be more susceptible to riverine or urban flooding than other parts of the region. Streets and buildings within these areas could be more susceptible to overbank flooding, surface ponding, overland flow, water seepage, and basement backups due to the presence of flood-related physical conditions that are correlated with reported flood damages.
Cook County manages grants and assessments of brownfields.
Past floods, current risks, and future projections based on peer-reviewed research from the world’s leading flood modelers. Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM, managed by FEMA) take into account watershed risks, and not flooding from precipitation and impervious surfaces.

The goal of the Calumet Reinvestment Mapping Tool (CRMT) is to bring underutilized sites in the Calumet region back into productive reuse. The Brownfield Working Group created this map as a baseline of brownfield and underutilized sites so that the best future use can be determined. Additional information is needed to determine a site’s highest and best use and data layers of economic development tools, environmental data, social vulnerability, land use and zoning have been added. The Calumet Collaborative hopes this mapping tool will assist in addressing potential contamination and advancing sustainable development practices in the region.
