Local property owners are encouraged to take part in the development of preliminary flood-risk maps for the Aucilla River Watershed, which includes parts of Jefferson and Madison counties, at a meeting later this month in Greenville.
Representatives from the Suwannee River Water Management District (District) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be on hand at 6 p.m. on July 26 to discuss the ongoing development of flood risk maps for the region. The meeting will take place at the Greenville Town Hall, 154 SW Old Mission Ave.
The District is seeking feedback from residents, along with city and county officials, in the development of these new flood risk maps. The maps are revised periodically to educate and assist property owners with updated and current information on their risk of flooding.
Feedback received during the meeting will be taken into consideration for the development of the preliminary maps, which are expected to be available to review later this year.
For those who cannot attend in-person, an online option will be available before the meeting. The link will be provided at www.MySuwanneeRiver.com.
