Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for
New London County, Connecticut
Technical information or comments are solicited
East Lyme has received updated flood hazard maps as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) nationwide Map Modernization Program. These maps will be effective for floodplain management purposes; however you will be given an opportunity to appeal. The appeal period for comments runs for 90 days from the last date of publication in The Day newspaper on June 20, 2012, which would be September 18, 2012.
Flood hazard maps, also known as DFIRMs, indicate whether properties are in areas of high, moderate or low flood risk. In reviewing the New London County maps, many property owners may find that their risk is higher or lower than they thought. If the risk level for a property changes, so may the requirement to carry flood insurance.
Residents should look at the new flood maps to both become familiar with the flood risks in their community and to see whether their flood zone has changed. For information on the statutory 90 day period provided for appeals, please visit FEMA’s website at www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/fhm/bfe or call the FEMA Map Information Exchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-336-2627.
