Flood Determination Information
Retrieved from: https://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/BFE_Status/bfe_main.asp

A flood hazard determination is defined as any addition or modification of a BFE, base flood depth, SFHA boundary or zone designation, or regulatory floodway boundary on the FIRM. SFHAs are areas subject to inundation by the base (1-percent-annual-chance) flood and include the following flood zones: A, AO, AH, A1-A30, AE, A99, AR, AR/A1-A30, AR/AE, AR/AO, AR/AH, AR/A, VO, V1-V30, VE, and V. Floodways are the channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than a designated height.

Section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 (Public Law 93-234) and corresponding NFIP regulations were developed to ensure an equitable balancing of all interests involved in the setting of flood hazard determinations. The legislation and regulations provide for an explicit process of notification and appeals for community officials and for private persons prior to FEMA making the flood hazard determinations final.
