Figure 4-1: Determining if site is in Special Flood Hazard Area
Figure 4-1. The map above shows a hypothetical community with an Un-Numbered A Zone (Special Flood Hazard Area). An amorphous shaped blue area indicates an estimate of the inundation area. By determining the actual distance from an identifiable point on the map to the proposed building site, and then converting it, using the scale, it can be determined that the proposed structure will be in Zone A and will therefore require a permit.
