Awareness Floodplain Maps


The intent of the Awareness Floodplain Mapping project is to identify all pertinent flood hazard areas by 2015 for areas that are not mapped under the Federal Agency Management Agency's (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and to provide the community and residents an additional tool in understanding potential flood hazards currently not mapped as a regulated floodplain. The awareness maps identify the 100-year flood hazard areas using approximate assessment procedures. These floodplains will be shown simply as flood prone areas without specific depths and other flood hazard data. Awareness Floodplain Maps will be added as they become available.

These maps are not FEMA regulatory floodplain maps; however, at the request of the community FEMA would include this data on their maps.
