New Tool Helps Delawareans Manage Flood Risk Amid Rising Climate Threats

Flooding is already a problem in Delaware, the lowest-lying state, and it is expected to worsen over time due to climate change. That’s why the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has launched a new flood planning tool, known as I-ADAPT, or the Individual Adaptation and Decision Planning Tool.


I-ADAPT: A Flood Planning and Adaptation Tool

The Individual Adaptation Decision and Planning Tool, I-ADAPT, is designed to help Delaware residents adapt to increased flooding. Users enter information about their property and the tool generates recommendations on how to lower their flood risk.  As Delaware residents experience flooding events more frequently due to climate change induced sea


I-ADAPT Definitions

The following is a glossary of terms used throughout the I-ADAPT tool and associated documents. The definitions are organized alphabetically. 100-year floodplain: According to FEMA, the 100-year floodplain is the boundary of the flood that has a 1-percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given


How to Use the I-ADAPT Tool

The I-ADAPT tool will ask a series of questions about your property and personal preferences. These questions are used to develop recommended strategies based on the specific information about your property. The questions span several pages within the tool. To toggle between these pages, select the “Next” button at


Flooding Adaptation Strategies

This page lists all of the flooding adaptation strategies and their associated informational documents available through the I-ADAPT Tool.  The adaptation strategies are listed by category — Interior, Exterior, Shoreline, Yard and Other adaptations — and alphabetically.
