    El Vado Wash Letter of Map Revision

    The Pima County Regional Flood Control District (District) on behalf of the City of Tucson (City) applied for a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to revise FIRM panels 04019C2288L and 04019C2880L to reflect improved data and modeling techniques. FEMA has agreed to revise the SFHA for the areas surrounding the El Vado Wash effective April 21, 2020. The proposed LOMR will result in: 

    1) Narrowing the width of the SFHA;
    2) removing 8.49 acres of land from the SFHA, and
    3) decreasing the water surface elevation of the flooding for those areas that remain in the SFHA.

    The map revisions may remove the need for property owners in the area to carry federal flood insurance or reduce the flood insurance rate on their home. Home owners should contact their mortgage holder or insurance company prior to April 21, 2020 to verify the impact of this
    LOMR. Floodplain revision maps are below:

    Additionally, a notification letter was mailed to affected property residents. For more information please visit the project website.

    If you have any questions or concerns about the proposed project or its effect on your property, please contact Janice Hughes, Civil Engineering Manager, with the District at (520) 724-4600, or Elizabeth Leibold, Civil Engineer with the City at (520) 837-4934, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
