Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for

Douglas County, Nevada, and Incorporated


The Department of Homeland Security’s

Federal Emergency Management Agency

has issued a preliminary Flood Insurance

Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable,

Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report, reflecting

proposed flood hazard determinations within

Douglas County, Nevada and Incorporated

Areas. These flood hazard determinations

may include the addition or modification of

Base Flood Elevations, base flood depths,

Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries

or zone designations, or the regulatory

floodway. Technical information or comments

are solicited on the proposed flood hazard

determinations shown on the preliminary

FIRM and/or FIS report for Douglas County,

Nevada and Incorporated Areas. These flood

hazard determinations are the basis for the

floodplain management measures that your

community is required to either adopt or show

evidence of being already in effect in order

to qualify or remain qualified for participation

in the National Flood Insurance Program.

However, before these determinations are

effective for floodplain management purposes,

you will be provided an opportunity to appeal

the proposed information. For information

on the statutory 90-day period provided for

appeals, as well as a complete listing of

the communities affected and the locations

where copies of the FIRM are available for

review, please visit FEMA’s website at https://

bfe_main.asp, or call the FEMA Mapping and

Insurance Exchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-

FEMA MAP (1-877-336-2627).
