LaMoure County And Incorporated Areas Getting New Flood Map

Proposed LaMoure County And Incorporated Areas Flood Maps Reflect Changes to Local Flood Risk

Updates to LaMoure County And Incorporated Areas flood insurance rate maps are nearing completion. The new maps will provide LaMoure County And Incorporated Areas with more accurate flood risk information that can help local officials and residents make informed decisions about reducing flood risks and purchasing flood insurance. The mapping project is a joint effort between LaMoure County, City of Dickey, City of Edgeley, City of LaMoure, City of Marion, Township of Grand Rapids, City of Berlin, City of Jud, City of Kulm, City of Verona, the ND Department of Water Resources, and FEMA. It is part of a nationwide effort led by FEMA to increase local knowledge of flood risk and support actions to address and reduce that risk.

Officials encourage residents and business owners to review the proposed maps to learn about the flood threat in their area, and potential future flood insurance purchase requirements. Once preliminary maps are released, there is a 90-day appeal period during which community members can provide additional data for consideration before the maps are final. This appeal period starts on January 24, 2024, and ends on April 23, 2024. Appeal packages should address scientific or technical mistakes in the maps, and must include supporting data or engineering documentation.

For further details on this process, visit, or contact your local floodplain administrator or Laura Horner, ND Rish MAP Program Manager, 701.328.2759,
