Flood Maps

How do I find out if a Property is in a Flood Hazard Area?
Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM), produced by the Flood Insurance Administration (FIA), are used to determine whether a property is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) also known as the 100-year or regulated flood plain.

Properties located in a SFHA may be required to have flood insurance.  Other construction and development permits may also be required to perform any type work on a property located in a SFHA.

You can find out if a property is in a SFHA in one of the following ways:

  • Visit Community Planning and Economic Development located at City Hall, 226 W 4th Street
  • Call Community Planning and Economic Development at 563.326.7765
  • Visit the FEMA website

The city utilizes a Geographic Information System (GIS) to track all of its assets. Data includes an inventory of infrastructure including elevations and other details that help the city respond and plan for many activities. GIS data has allowed the city to forecast flood inundation along the riverfront at each level of river depth. This data is useful when implementing the flood plan. In addition this data is used to predict probable hazards when flooding occurs along creeks and streams.
