Flood Information

          The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) are in the process of revising the flood insurance map for Nassau County. The proposed new map refines the flood hazard boundaries used to estimate flood risks in the county and to calculate Federal flood insurance premiums.

          The proposed changes will affect a few dozen properties in Rockville Centre in the vicinity of Mill River, though all residents may want to know more about flood hazards and the federal flood insurance program.

          Copies of the proposed revised map and its companion flood insurance study are available for viewing at the Rockville Centre Building Department, 110 Maple Avenue, and online using the links listed below.
