The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has completed new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Kent County. The FIRMs are officially in effect on February 23, 2023.
Because Walker participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the City has officially adopted these maps which qualifies City residents for flood insurance. Part of this effort included an update to Chapter 42: Floods of the Walker City Code.
For more information, contact FEMA-NFIP. If you think your property should not be considered a flood plain, you will need to get a property survey and complete the FEMA- Letter of Map Amendment process.
