The map does not reflect the changes that are in effect due to the remapping project in the Cow Creek Watershed.  Go to the link "Cow Creek Watershed Floodplain Map" for the areas affected.  It is anticipated that FEMA will update the county-wide map after February 15, 2019.

Barton County Floodplain Application (Fillable Form)

The purpose of a Floodplain Development Permit is to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare, and to minimize flood losses by applying provisions designed to:

     Restrict or prohibit uses which are dangerous to health, safety or property in times of flooding or cause undue increases in flood heights or velocities.

     Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including public facilities which serve such uses, be provided with flood protection at the time of initial construction.

     Protect individuals from buying lands which are unsuited for intended purposes because of flood hazards.
