NOTICE TO: Lending Institutions and Real Estate and Insurance Agents

SUBJECT: Flood Insurance Rate Map Information

As a public service, the City of Wood River will provide you with the following information upon request:

  • Whether a property is in or out of the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the City.
  • Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevation or depth, as shown on the FIRM.
  • We have a handout on the flood insurance purchase requirement that can help people who need a mortgage or a loan for a property in the SFHA.

If you would like to make an inquiry, please tell us the street address and, if available, the subdivision, lot and block number. The Department of Building & Zoning is open 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. Call us at (618) 251-3100 or visit our office at City Hall. There is no charge for this service. The Department also has completed FEMA Elevation Certificates for buildings that were constructed in the floodplain since 1983.
