Floodplain Base Flood Elevation Lines - DFIRM, 2004 (1:12,000)
Shows base flood elevations (BFEs) created from FEMA Flood Rate Insurance Maps
(FIRM). BFE lines indicate the rounded whole-foot water surface elevation of
the 1 percent annual chance flood. BFE lines are required in riverine AE zones.
AE Zones are areas inundated by 1 percent annual chance flooding (100-year flood),
for which BFEs have been determined.
These data may be used with an associated DFIRM floodplain shapefile and cross-sections
