DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for
Richmond County, Virginia and Incorporated Areas
The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) has issued a Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report, reflecting proposed flood hazard determinations within Richmond County, Virginia 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 various
communities within Richmond County, Virginia 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://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/
