Floodplain Maps

Information on the Maps

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) no longer prints paper flood maps, so the maps you can view online are what you would see if you visited City Hall. If you are considering buying or renting property and are not sure if it floods, information on past flooding is available.

  • Look up flood zones and base flood elevations for specific parcels by address on the floodplain map
  • Request a letter from the city Floodplain Administrator verifying the flood zone of a specific parcel.

Flood Risks & Insurance

FEMA also has a consumer-friendly site specifically for locating flood risks and insurance information at the Floodsmart.gov website.


If you experience any difficulty or have questions, email the City Engineer ,or call the Engineering Department at 281-275-2870.
