Over the past few years Grand County has been working to update old FEMA floodplain mapping, that had been generated in the late 1970s using minimal science, with new mapping using the most modern and accurate LIDAR technology. The new mapping has gone through a rigorous approval process with FEMA and is now in standard FIRM (Flood Insurance Rate Map) mapping format.
Preliminary mapping is posted here, so that they can be checked for errors and so the community can get an understanding of the changes that are being made. We are being asked to examine the maps and provide corrections for non-technical information such as corporate limits, road names and stream names on the FIRM and Flood Insurance Study.
