Floodplain Mapping
The Division of Water has conducted many floodplain mapping projects since 1965. These maps show features such as roads, buildings, fence lines, railroads, vegetation, and contour lines that give ground elevations. Most of the maps are at a scale of 1 inch = 200 feet; however, some maps are at 1 inch =100 feet or 1 inch = 400 feet. The contour interval is 2 feet. Please note that the index maps below show the footprint on the ground of the entire sheet; however, in many cases, only certain areas within that footprint were mapped. Some areas may be blank.

Although called floodplain mapping, these maps do not show floodways or other flood zones. Maps showing flood zones are available from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Toll Free Telephone Number 1-800-358-9616.
