The Floodplain Administrator reviews and inspects all construction activity in and adjacent to floodplains for conformance with the City's Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance (City Code Chapter 43) and applicable federal and state regulations, particularly regulations required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
During flash flood events, some roadways, intersections, underpasses, and other areas are prone to flood. The flood prone area map provides a general overview of some of these trouble spots and is not intended to be an exhaustive list.
The FEMA Flood Plain Hazards map is an interactive map of the City of Longview's floodplain and floodway areas. The map also includes data points highlighting properties that have received previous flood mitigation determinations.
