Recently FEMA completed a Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). To review this preliminary map, click here.
The map on the right shows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designated flood plains that are currently active within the Walker City Limits-these were adopted in 1982.

In 1997, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted the Flood Insurance Study in Kent County. The Study assisted in determining the administrative requirements of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1973, as well as updating floodplain regulation as part of the Regular Phase of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The flood data collected throughout Kent County provided better information in order to determine flood insurance rates.
