Jefferson County’s adoption of the Floodplain Ordinance makes it possible for residents of Jefferson County to obtain flood insurance under the FEMA flood insurance program.  The Engineering Department administers the Floodplain Ordinance which requires that any structures and/or the subdivision of land located in the flood hazard areas of Jefferson County comply with the regulations.  The floodplain manager provides floodplain delineation determinations and base flood elevation determinations, reviews Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) and Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) submissions, and maintains the floodplain maps for Jefferson County.
