(a)              Areas to be regulated.  Areas to be regulated by this chapter include all areas within the limits of the county that would be covered by the regional flood or base flood as shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) or other maps approved by the DNR. Base flood elevations are derived from the flood profiles in the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and are shown as AE, A1-A30, and AH Zones on the FIRM.  Other regulatory zones are displayed as A and AO zones on the FIRM.  Regional Flood Elevations (RFE) may be derived from other studies.  If more than one map or revision is referenced, the most restrictive information shall apply.

 

(b)              Official maps, revisions, and amendments. The boundaries of all floodplain districts are designated as A, AE, AH, AO or A1-A30 on the maps based on the FIS listed below.  Any change to the base flood elevations (BFE) or any changes to the boundaries of the floodplain, floodway or flood storage in the FIS or on the FIRM must be reviewed and approved by the DNR and FEMA through the Letter of Map Change (LOMC) process before it is effective.  No changes to RFE’s on non-FEMA maps shall be effective until approved by the DNR.  These maps, revisions, or amendments are on file in the Department.  If more than one map, revision, or amendment is referenced, the most restrictive information shall apply.
