Availability of Flood Hazard Maps and Data
Document Number: E8-25269
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-10-23
Agency: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is completing the update and conversion to digital of the National Flood Insurance Program flood hazard map inventory. As part of the Flood Map Modernization Program, FEMA will discontinue the public distribution of paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps, Flood Insurance Study reports, and related flood hazard map products. FEMA will provide communities where the flood hazard information is updated with an updated paper map to satisfy local regulatory requirements for a paper map product. For all other requests, FEMA will distribute digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps, Flood Insurance Study reports, and related flood hazard map products in place of the paper versions. Over the past several years, FEMA has transitioned from paper maps to digital map images and digital flood hazard data as the primary flood hazard information products. These products will still be available through the FEMA Map Service Center. This change will reduce duplication of effort and reduce the cost for updating flood hazard maps.
