Flood Protection & Preparation Information
In May 2014, the City of Auburn was accepted into the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS). Even though everyone does not own or live on property in a floodplain, the program benefits the community by protecting the environment, making people safer, and saving everyone money. The City received a Class 7 score for our CRS application, which allows citizens of Auburn a 15% discount on their flood insurance for those in the Special Flood Hazard Area and a 5% discount for those in the Non-Special Flood Hazard Area. In the spirit of the CRS program, the City of Auburn is dedicated to informing and educating our residents regarding floodplains in the City of Auburn.
The October 2014 issue of the Open Line featuring flood protection information is here.
