The City of Reno, working together with Washoe County, determined that a revision to the existing flood map was needed for the area in Cold Springs (north of Reno) known as White Lake. A revised flood map was recently issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and will become effective on August 11, 2010. The revised flood map takes into account updated rainfall data, more detailed topographic data, updated land use data, and technically superior hydrologic methodology. No structures (houses, businesses or other buildings) are directly impacted by the flood map changes.
Posted below are the documents that were recently sent out as part of a public mailer directed at those property owners either directly affected by the map changes or in close proximity. Additional documents may be added to this webpage in the future as needed.
