There are three types of floodplains in Roseville. Each floodplain has a set of regulations governing development within the area, as well as different maps showing the limits of each floodplain. A property may be in one or all three types of floodplains.
- Flood Hazard Area, as defined by FEMA’s Flood Insurance Study
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) delineates flood hazard areas for flood insurance purposes. These areas are shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for the Roseville area.
- Roseville’s Regulatory Floodplain
Roseville’s Regulatory Floodplain covers more property than that shown on a FIRM. The City’s Regulatory Floodplain boundaries are defined in the Safety Element Section of the City’s General Plan and is used to regulate development in the floodplain. To get more information on these regulations go to “Constructing in the Floodplain”
- Roseville’s “Zoned” Floodway and Floodway Fringe
The Floodway and Floodway Fringe Zones are shown on the City of Roseville zoning map. Regulations for development are spelled out in the City’s Zoning Ordinance. For the most part, these zones are in the older parts of the city and fall completely within the City’s Regulatory Floodplain boundaries.
