Flood Prone Map

Flood Prone Maps are used to assess the risk of a flood in the area.
Official National Wetlands Inventory maps produced for the Corps of Engineers. These maps are extremely useful where development is planned since they could show old wetlands that are currently dry which should be considered prior to actual development beginning. In the few cases where maps are not available, the names, addresses and phone numbers of the appropriate local agency offices are provided.
