The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has completed a multi-year project to re-examine Fairfax County’s flood zones and produce detailed digital flood hazard maps. In some cases, the existing flood zone boundaries have been modified. The preliminary updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), which reflect the flood risk based on the latest data, have been released for public review. As a result, property owners throughout the County will have up-to-date, internet-accessible information about flood risk to their properties.
