Flood mapping is an important part of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), as it is the basis of the NFIP regulations and flood insurance requirements. The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) flood mapping program is called Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning, or Risk MAP. FEMA is currently undergoing a multi-year process of updating their flood maps for the entire region. While there is virtually no change to the flood maps as it relates to the Town of Clinton, properties located in flood zones should still take appropriate actions to ensure your properties are protected.
Navigating the NFIP and flood maps can be confusing, but there are excellent resources available to the public who have questions.
