2015 Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) Issued by FEMA
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has update its mapping for all of St. Louis County, which the City of Wildwood has adopted to remain a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). These maps represent the first major update since August 2, 1995, and contain much more accurate engineering information, such as new flood studies and topographic data. In some cases, the updated maps now identify greater or lesser impacted land areas. The new FIRMs and associated Flood Insurance Study (FIS) are available for public review at Wildwood City Hall during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). The maps are also available for review below. (Please note, these maps are very large files and do take some time to load.)
These maps went into effect on February 4, 2015. Any general questions or concerns can be directed to the City’s Floodplain Administrator, Rick Brown, by email. Additionally, any specific mapping questions or concerns can be directed to the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) Floodplain Management Section Engineer, Scott Zeller, by email.
