New Flood Hazard Maps for Walton County

flood mapWalton County’s flood risk information has been revised, and updated flood hazard maps are ready for

review. The issued preliminary flood maps will replace outdated studies, some of which are more than 30

years old. Revisions to these mapping products may affect residents and business owners in

unincorporated Walton County, the City of Good Hope, the City of Monroe, and the City of Social Circle. You

can view the new preliminary maps to see how your flood risk may have changed, learn how they can affect

building and flood insurance requirements and find out what your options are at a Virtual Flood Risk Open

House (link below):

Georgia’s Virtual Flood Risk Open House provides information relevant to the proposed changes in flood risk

in your community, as well as an opportunity to connect with floodplain management experts from your local

jurisdictions, the GA Department of Natural Resources and the Federal Emergency Management Agency

(FEMA). In-person virtual meetings are available by appointment only and can be reserved on the website,

via the “Connect with Us” page of the Virtual Flood Risk Open House (link above). Appointments will be held

between May 3, 2021 – May 6, 2021. Please reserve your appointment between April 19, 2021 – April 30,
