Is my property within a floodplain?

You can go to the Jefferson County Interactive Map and check the floodplain layer to view the floodplains in Jefferson County. You can also go to the FEMA Flood Map Service Center and search your address to view if you are within a floodplain.

The floodplains layers in the Jefferson County Interactive Map include Jefferson County designated floodplains that have not been acknowledged by FEMA (but may be in the future) in addition to FEMA designated floodplains. Definitions of the FEMA floodplains can be found here. The Jefferson County floodplains include 100-year floodplains and flood prone areas. Floodplain development permits are still required if work and/or development is occurring
