Floodplain Regulations


  • Research floodplain regulations before beginning construction.

In general, the City's Floodplain Regulations are stricter for new structures and residential buildings than for existing structures and commercial buildings.

Contact Utilities before undertaking any construction (new development, additions, remodels, filling, grading, etc.) on a building or property located in a regulatory floodplain to determine specific floodplain requirements.

Different floodplains have different regulations. A floodplain use permit is required for all construction in the floodplain.

  • Minimize property damage when a flood occurs
  • Ensure new development does not make flooding problem worse
