FEMA Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for Morris County, New Jersey


The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency has issued revised preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and where applicable, Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports, reflecting proposed flood hazard determinations within Morris County, New Jersey (All Jurisdictions).  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 revised preliminary FIRMs and/or FIS reports for Morris County, New Jersey (All Jurisdictions).  These flood hazard determinations are the basis for the floodplain management measures that Jurisdictions are 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,  or call the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-FEMA MAP (1-877-336-2627).
