New Floodplain Map Unveiled

By Gene Birk | 

The old floodplain map was made in 1993. It shows "Cave Mill Road" and a couple of sinkholes in black and white, but not in much detail.

The new digital map of the same area shows much greater detail, with buildings and streets easily seen.

Warren County Floodplain Coordinator, Eric Larson says, "It makes the maps more accurate than they've been in the past, which allows us to do a better job of determining the flood hazard for any potential property."

A preliminary digital flood insurance rate map will be available for public viewing at an open house at BGMU's Annex from 3:00-7:00 p.m. May 4.
