The Southwest Florida Water Management District, in cooperation with local governments, is developing flood risk information for watersheds throughout west-central Florida. The floodplain map viewer is an interactive tool that allows you to view flood risk information that has been developed to date as part of the District’s Watershed Management Program. The information is provided as an advisory tool for flood hazard awareness and to present preliminary floodplain results for public review and comment. Once finalized, the flood hazard information will be used by the District as the most appropriate information for environmental resource permitting and will, in the future, be used to revise the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).

If you do not know which watershed you live in, you may submit an address using the watershed search tool to find out.
