Flood Information

 
The City of Alamogordo participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  The NFIP makes federally backed flood insurance available for most buildings, whether they are in a flood plain or not.  Flood insurance covers direct losses caused by surface flooding, including an arroyo flowing over its banks, and local drainage problems.

MAP REVISION (LOMR) NOTICE  (Effective September 23, 2013)

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved a revision to part of the city's designated floodplain (Special Flood Hazard Area).  Due to a required 90-day appeal period, the Flood Map Revision will be effective September 23, 2013.  As a result of the South Diversion Channel Project, which constructed the sediment/debris basin at the mouth of Marble Canyon and the concrete-lined channel to the Washington Detention Basin next to Mountain View Middle School, the Corps of Engineers submitted a request in 2008 to revise flood maps within the area affected by the project.
