Floodplain Management Plan Details Stormwater Progress

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The City of Clearwater's Floodplain Management Plan helps to identify areas in the city that are prone to flooding and is available at www.myclearwater.com/flooding. The National Flood Insurance Program discounts flood insurance for properties in communities such as Clearwater that have created a Floodplain Management Plan.

The plan serves as a five-year outlook of what residents can expect when it comes to stormwater and flooding. Some changes and progress from the last update in 2009 include the following:

Clearwater added several new online features to help residents, property owners, property professionals, and others to identify the flood zone for a particular property and request elevation certificates. These are available at www.myclearwater.com/flooding.

Following is a list of stormwater projects that have been completed in the past few years:

- Tropic Hills Stormwater Outfall Phase I
