Revised Flood Insurance Rate Maps

Home and GardenThe Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has revised flood hazard zones in the Mat-Su Borough. These revisions utilize a combination of high resolution topographic data and detailed fieldwork that was not available in the 1980's when our floodplains were last studied.

Property owners are encouraged to review the revised flood maps. They are available on the front page of the Mat-Su Borough’s website or directly access the online viewer at:
