This map shows the existing Special Flood Hazard Areas.

Within the City, the areas in blue were designated as Special Flood Hazard Areas (1% annual chance of inundation, also commonly known as the 100 year floodplain and floodway) by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on March 2, 2012. Lenders, insurers, and City regulations currently address this area as the floodplain and floodway.

Questions about any property, as well as an official determination of its location in any floodplain, should be directed to Rob Crossman, City of Altoona's Public Works Department, 814-949-2446.
