MUDDY CREEK TOWNSHIP ORDINANCE 73 (An ordinance requiring a floodplain permit for any construction or developmnet and settinf forth certain minimum requirements for new construction and development within areas of the township which are subject to flodding; providing for administration and enforcement of floodplain requirements; and establishing variance and appeal procedures, and remedies and penalties for violations) is effective beginning on August 2, 2018.
Congress established the National Flood Insruace Program (NFIP) due to escalating costs to taxpayers for flood disaster relief. The NFIP is based on an agreement that if a community practices sound floodplain management, teh Federal Government will make flood insurance available to residence in tha community. FEMA maps include the Special Flodd Hazard Area, which is the area that has 1% or greater chance of flooding in any given year. Development may take place within the Special Flood Hazard Area provided that it complies with local floodplain ordinances that meet NFIP criteria.
The Flood Insurance Rate Map for Butler County update has been adopted and effective August 2, 2018. Copies of the map can be viewed at the township office during normal business hours or by appointment. Additionallly, the maps can be viewed by visiting http://msc.fema.gov. You will be able to enter your address to determine if you are in the flood zone.
