Flood Information

 

Township Flood & Map Information Services:

Through its Flood Hazard Mapping Program, FEMA identifies flood hazards, assesses flood risks, and partners with States and communities to provide accurate flood hazard and risk data to guide them to mitigation actions.  Flood Hazard 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.  FEMA maintains and updates data through Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and risk assessments. 

For questions related to FEMA FIRM maps, contact the Township Engineer at engineer@denvillenj.org. You can also visit the Engineering Department at 1 St. Mary’s Place to see if you are in a mapped floodplain area such as the Special Flood Hazard Area or Floodway.  If so, the Engineering Department can give you more information, such as the FIRM zone, base flood elevations, past flood problems in the area, problems not shown on the FIRM map, and information on Elevation Certificates.  A meeting can be set up to provide inquirers with information about flood hazards, flood protection measures, and/or possible financial assistance that is available. Please be advised, that even if you are not in a floodplain, there still may be some risk of flooding.  In order to make a flood map request, or request a one-on-one flood protection assistance meeting, please call 973.625.8300 x246, send an email with your request from our website http://www.denvillenj.org/departments/flood_information, send an email directly to engineer@denvillenj.org, or visit 1 St. Mary’s Place.
