 OPEN HOUSE

DIGITAL PRELIMINARY FLOOD MAPS FOR JASPER

COUNTY ARE READY FOR PUBLIC VIEWING 

FEMA has released digital preliminary flood maps for Jasper County. An Open House for the public will be held on July 13, 2017 from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the County Council Chambers located at 358 Third Avenue, Ridgeland, SC 29936. 

The purpose of this Open House is to give the citizens an opportunity to view the changes since the last Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) as well as ask questions about what the new maps will mean for their property. Residents can meet one-on-one with a variety of specialists who will be available to talk about flood insurance, engineering, building permits and more.   

The new preliminary maps were produced through a partnership among Jasper County, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Because of better flood hazard and risk data, the new maps are more accurate and precise than the older maps. The ultimate goal is protecting property owners and the community from the risks associated with flooding. Over time, flood risks change due to construction and development, environmental changes, floodplain widening or shifting, along with other factors. This is the first update of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for Jasper County since 1986.  

By law, federally regulated or insured mortgage lenders require flood insurance on properties that are located in areas at high risk of flooding. Visit www.floodsmart.gov for more information about flood insurance and to locate a local agent. Any questions in reference to local ordinance compliance can be directed your local plain administrator.
