Floodplain Mapping

All six local governments in Clark County are currently participating in the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In participating communities, residents are eligible for federally subsidized flood insurance. In order to participate in the NFIP, communities must adopt flood hazard maps prepared by FEMA, and floodplain regulations in compliance with FEMA's minimum requirements. It is the District's objective to reduce flood hazards by implementing the Flood Control Master Plan. As part of the District's ongoing effort to improve the accuracy of FEMA's flood insurance rate maps and take credit for completed flood control facilities, restudy of flood hazard areas are required. Many areas have already been restudied resulting in their removal from identified 100-year flood zones.

The participating communities (entities) are required to administer the NFIP within their boundaries. Citizens can find out if their property is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area, as determined by FEMA, by contacting the appropriate entity at:

Boulder City 293-9200
City of Henderson 565-2385*
City of Las Vegas 229-6569*
City of Mesquite 346-5295
City of North Las Vegas 633-1223
Clark County 455-4600

* Recorded message/response center

Flood hazard mapping forms in PDF format can be downloaded from FEMA's web site.
