Coconino County announced Thursday that updated, digital flood hazard maps for the Munds Park area are available to view and comment. The maps, also known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps, show the extent to which areas recently re-mapped in the area are at risk of flooding. The maps are used to help determine flood insurance and building requirements. They replace maps that were based on studies more than 30 years old. In reviewing the maps, some property owners in the Munds Park area will find that their risk is higher or lower than they thought. If the risk level for a property changes, then requirements for flood insurance and building standards can change as well.
