In December 2010, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMs) for the City of Littleton went into effect. Prior to this date, the official floodplain maps were specific to the city limits. With adoption of the new maps, Littleton has become part of the overall Arapahoe County floodplain map.
The new maps are based on the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1988. Property owners, insurance agents and mortgage providers will find the new DFIRMs to be very informative and easy to use.
