Flood Inundation Map
NEW! Local Flood Maps Now Available!
Stephenson County is happy to present the new NOAA/USGS Flooding Inundation mapping now available to the public. Flood Inundation maps will show the extent of flooding that can be expected over a given area. These maps will help indicate when floodwaters are likely to impact roadways, streets, buildings, etc. State and local agencies that must operate during flood events are the primary audience for these maps, however, the maps are also available to other agencies, media, and the general public. See it for yourself at the National Weather Service's Flood Inundation Mapping page.
