Boschert Creek Levee Study
The agricultural levee adjacent to Boschert Creek between Boschertown Road and New Town Blvd. was de-certified in 2009. Until this time, it was shown on the effective Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) as providing protection to the adjoining properties. When the FIRM was revised in 2010 and the preliminary DFIRM published, it showed parts of Charlestowne and the commercial area south of the creek in the floodplain.
FEMA is now proceeding with the Final Levee Analysis and Mapping Procedure (LAMP), which will determine the flood risk and generate the DFIRM for the secluded area. It is anticipated that 853 residences and 74 commercial properties will be mapped into the flood hazard area and be required to obtain flood insurance.
The Department of Engineering has meet with property owners regarding the Boschert Creek Levee Study. The following presentation has been given during the meetings held in March 2017: Boschert Creek Presentation
Another series of meetings were held in October 2017. The following presentation was given at that time: October Boschert Creek Presentation
The Department will meet with residents again on June 13 & 14, 2018.
