FEMA Flood Risk Map Project

The Federal Emergency Management Administration along with the Army Corp of Engineers is updating its flood risk map. The current map drawn in 1986 is a low resolution approximation of the flood risk areas of South Dakota. The new map will be of a much higher resolution. This will allow a 'truer' evaluation of the flood risk for our area and most of eastern South Dakota. The 3 to 7 year project will take into account the various infrastructure barriers to flow. This flow study was never done in the past.

FEMA is also talking to knowledgable folks on the ground to get their input on problem areas and history. With the hi-res maps better planning and identification of future planning will be greatly improved.

Watch for the first draft map release in early 2017.

Lake Water Level – A History

As you make your plans for your lake shore and your recreation on our waters, the lake has an ever changing personality. Pot hole glacial lakes are prone to vast variations in water level.

DENR has maintained records of these levels since 1982. This is the graph of their observations.

Please keep these variations in mind when planning your land projects. Your shoreline looks vastly different with 10+ feet change in water level.

As soon as the ice is off the lake we will continue or weekly reports on the lake levels – right here at lakepoinsett.org

FEMA Flood Risk Map Project

The Federal Emergency Management Administration along with the Army Corp of Engineers is updating its flood risk map. The current map drawn in 1986 is a low resolution approximation of the flood risk areas of South Dakota. The new map will be of a much higher resolution. This will allow a 'truer' evaluation of the flood risk for our area and most of eastern South Dakota. The 3 to 7 year project will take into account the various infrastructure barriers to flow. This flow study was never done in the past.

FEMA is also talking to knowledgable folks on the ground to get their input on problem areas and history. With the hi-res maps better planning and identification of future planning will be greatly improved.

Watch for the first draft map release in early 2017.
