County receives new flood plain maps from FEMA

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

BENTON -- Scott County has received new flood plain maps from FEMA but county officials are still unsure what, if anything, has changed.

Joel Evans, flood plain manager for the county, said 69 map pages, each of which is 24 by 36 inches, were received in a package from the Federal Emergency Management Agency earlier this month.

On flood plain permits issued since receiving the new maps, the current maps are still being used to determine if the structure is located within a flood plain as the new maps haven't been formally accepted yet.
