Floodplain Management Plan

Effective August 3, 2009, the City of Emeryville is implementing new Floodplain Management measures in order to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The new Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) issued by FEMA for the City of Emeryville, and all other information regarding Emeryville’s Floodplain Status can be found on the FEMA Map Service Center website www.msc.fema.gov . In general, the new FIRM shows that all of the City of Emeryville is located within Zone X, except for the coastal area within the tidal zone which is located in Zone V. For communities that participate in the NFIP, flood insurance is available to all properties in Zone X on a voluntary basis.
