Floodplain Management is Citrus County's program of preventive and corrective measures for reducing flood damage. Citrus County participates in the Community Rating System to reduce and avoid flood damage to insurable properties.

Citrus County’s rating is currently 6 out of 10, which translates to a 20% savings in flood insurance premiums to properties located in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and a 10% savings in flood insurance premiums to properties located outside the SFHA.

Floodplain Management Activities Include the Following:

  • Management of all development for properties located in the Special Flood Hazard Area
  • The coordination of Community Rating System activities that result in the reduction of flood insurance premiums within the County
  • The official community repository for all flood maps and Letters of Map Amendments
  • General assistance to the public, lenders, insurers and other professionals in obtaining copies of pertinent documents and flood zone research property specific
  • Coordination with our local, State and FEMA business partners
