Floodplain Mapping Projects

FEMA has available several services for different phases of a mapping project. Preliminary, Pending and Effective products can be downloaded on from the Map Service Center. FEMA also maintains several map viewers:

National Flood Hazard Layer - displays the effective digital data
> Flood Map Changes Viewer  - includes the Preliminary and Pending digital map data, with a Changes Since Last FIRM layer that compares the Preliminary/Pending data with the effective data

KDA maintains project-specific map viewers for active projects that are based on the same digital data. The web links are included on the project pages below. 

Dodge City

The Dodge City Flood Hazard Mapping project has developed draft floodplain maps to reflect that the Dodge City Levee is unaccredited and thus doesn't show the levee providing protection against the 1% annual chance flood. The hydrology used in the study is based on the 2020 mixed distribution hydrologic analysis study and the hydraulics is based on the updated hydrology and the Arkansas River channel excavation.
