The following Study Maps are approximate and for general overview use only. 

FEMA flood maps for the North Albany area became effective on December 8, 2016. Maps can be viewed by going to msc.fema.gov and entering “Albany Oregon” in the search box. On this page, use the locator map to find the area you are interested in and view or save the effective Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) panel.

100-year Floodplain Boundary

This map shows the new 100-year floodplain boundary that FEMA will incorporate into their maps.  The location of a previously unmapped floodway is also identified. This map also identifies structures that may be located, whole or in part, within the previously unmapped floodway.

Comparison of Floodplain Boundaries

This map compares the 100-year floodplain boundary as previously defined by FEMA to the boundary as FEMA will incorporate into their new maps.  This map compares the extents of flooding and does not show changes in the depth of flooding.

  • Light Blue = Area where the flooded locations will not change.  
  • Pink = Area that will not be included in the floodplain on the new FEMA maps (i.e. has been removed from the floodplain).study says should come out of the floodplain on FEMA’s maps 
  • Red = Area that will be included in the floodplain on the new FEMA maps (i.e. has been added to the floodplain).

Comparison of Floodplain Depths

This map shows changes in the depths of flooding when comparing the new FEMA map to the old FEMA maps. This map was created to show general trends in increasing or decreasing amounts of flooding over the current ground surface and should not be used to try and determine the depth of flooding on any specific parcel. For further clarification, this map does not represent potential increases or decreases in base flood elevations.

  • Orange = Areas that will be removed from the floodplain in the new FEMA maps.
  • Shades of Green = Identify decreases in depths of flooding when comparing the new FEMA maps to the old FEMA maps.
  • Shades of Blue = Identify increases in depths of flooding when comparing the new FEMA maps to the old FEMA maps.
  • The legend provided on the map identifies the specific depths associated with each shade.
