Floodplain Information Pamphlet
In Jefferson County, flooding and other drainage problems can result after several inches of rain in a short period of time or after several days of continued rain. Over the past 20 years, our community has experienced numerous storms or rainfall events causing flood damage. If you are looking at buying a property, it is a good idea to check out the possible flood hazards before you buy. The Dept of Enginnering, Planning, & Zoning has created a Floodplain Information Pamphlet for prospective property owners. To view this pamphlet, please click here.
