FEMA has announced the effective date for the new floodplain maps will be December 22, 2016.
If you are negatively affected by the new floodplain boundaries, you will need to act prior to that date.
By planning early, you may be able to save money on flood insurance, if needed, or you may be able to make
changes to the property that may prevent a mandatory flood insurance requirement. To view the new maps on-line
please visit https://gismaps.sedgwickcounty.org/mabcd/fema/.
To discuss your property or get more details please call the Sedgwick County Floodplain Technician, Kelly Dixon at 316-660-1840.
