FEMA Flood Map Updates

FEMA updated the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for portions of West Bountiful effective September 15, 2022. These changes may affect the flood insurance some properties pay; for example, properties along the west side of Mountain View Estates, Kinross subdivision, and properties north of Porter Lane and west of 830 West have been eliminated from the floodplain.

If you currently carry flood insurance because your property is in the floodplain you can review the current (revised) FEMA mapping and any effects to your property on the following website:

FEMA Flood Map Service Center | Search By Address

Type in your address, hit the search button, view your site-specific area, then choose from the two options,

  1. Download a FIRM Panel
  2. Print a site-specific map

If you believe this may impact the insurance you pay on your property, you can contact your insurance company to evaluate. 

Whether or not you carry flood insurance on your property, all residents are encouraged to view the FEMA mapping of the floodplain to determine if it affects your property. If you have questions, please contact Kris Nilsen, City Engineer, at 801-292-4486 or [email protected] .
