Rebuilding in a floodway

Homes and businesses located in a designated floodway are at the highest ongoing risk of a future flood.

Rebuilding in floodways is discouraged. Development in these areas is generally not going to benefit from flood mitigation.

Every eligible home and small business owner with property damage from the 2013 floods will receive government financial support. If you accept disaster recovery funds and your rebuilt home is located in a floodway, your home will not qualify for any future flood-related disaster assistance.
