Flood Plain Management

The purpose of Flood Plain Management for the City of North Charleston is to protect our citizens and natural resources from natural disasters.  This is accomplished by regulating development in special flood hazard areas that have been designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  Flood Plain Managers of the City of North Charleston can also provide information to citizens concerning the special flood hazard area, insurance information, required elevations, copies of elevation certificates, ordinance clarifications, informational handouts and web resources.  Upon request, citizens can request copies of the elevation certificate for their residence from the Flood Plain Manager, if available.

The Community Rating System

The Community Rating System (CRS) is a nationwide program sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  This program has been in existence since 1990 and its objectives are to reduce flood losses, facilitate accurate insurance ratings, and promote awareness of flood insurance.  The CRS program accomplishes its objectives by providing incentives in the form of flood insurance premium discounts for the citizens in its communities which participate in the program. 

Additional information regarding the CRS program is available at the Charleston County Public Libraries, the City of North Charleston Building Inspections Department, and from FEMA on the web at www.fema.gov.
