Pierce County seeking public comments on updated Nisqually Watershed flood maps

In partnership with the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Pierce County is updating the flood insurance rate maps along the Nisqually River.

The updated maps are available at

The County is asking for help from the public in reviewing these maps for any possible errors and other comments of concerns.

These maps are used by FEMA to show where flood insurance is required and by the County to identify where floodplain regulations are applied. The maps also help individuals and communities better understand flood risks, so they can make more informed decisions about how to protect themselves from losses and damage.

The comment period closes Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2022.
