Flood Maps Updated with New Data From Local Studies
The Mile High Flood District (MHFD) has worked with local governments and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through a Physical Map Revision (PMR) process to revise portions of regulatory flood maps or Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for parts of Arapahoe County, Douglas County, and the City and County of Denver. The MHFD and the local governments produced updated Flood Hazard Area Delineation studies to identify natural and man-made changes affecting flood risk. These studies revised information along Happy Canyon Creek, Badger Gulch, Green Acres Tributary, Senac Creek, Toll Gate Creek, East Toll Gate Creek, West Toll Gate Creek, Unnamed Creek, Cherry Creek, Littles Creek, and Martson Lake North Drainageway.
The communities impacted by this study include the Cities of Littleton, Aurora, Centennial, Denver, Glendale, Greenwood Village, Lone Tree, the Town of Parker, and portions of unincorporated Arapahoe and Douglas Counties.
The objective of the PMR process is to update the regulatory flood hazard data and ensure the most current information is incorporated into the National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL). PMRs are processed by FEMA when only a portion of a community’s flood hazard information needs to be revised and updating the full countywide maps are not necessary. For more information on how MHFD partners with local governments and FEMA to incorporate local knowledge of flood risk, please visit our Floodplain Management page. The revised FIRMs will become effective September 4, 2020.
