Important Message: (from Robert Hall, Floodplain Administrator, Greenville County)
I wanted to let your membership know that FEMA has issued a new draft Flood Insurance Study to Greenville County. A statutory 90 day appeal period for the new study was initiated on April 20, 2012 and you can find additional details on the Greenville County website (www.greenvillecounty.org).
When the study becomes effective, the Flood Insurance Rate Maps will change to reflect new or revised flood modeling where applicable. Flood elevations may increase, decrease or remain unchanged. Many areas with approximated flood zone delineations will now have actual flood elevations shown on the maps.
