Flood maps and flood protection references are available at the Township Public Library. You can also visit the Planning Department at 1 Saint 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 Planning Department staff can provide you with more information, such as ground flood elevations, past flood problems in the area and copies of elevation certificates on buildings built in the floodplain since 2010 (also posted on Township website). Furthermore, the Planning Department can provide information on flood insurance for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevations, if shown on a firm. 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 information request, please send an email with your request or visit the Planning Department at 1 Saint Mary’s Place.
