Floodplain

James City County has released the 2019 Annual Report on the Floodplain Management Plan. The Annual Report highlights the progress made by the County towards the identification, reduction and mitigation of flood losses. The Floodplain Management Plan and the Annual Report are required by National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System.

James City County’s Floodplain Management Plan is part of the Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan 2017 Update. This updated plan, which is a revision of the 2011 version, was adopted by the James City County Board of Supervisors on March 14, 2017.

The Plan identifies the region’s risk from potential hazards such as hurricanes, tornadoes and flooding. It identifies potential mitigation efforts that localities can implement to minimize losses associated with these hazards.

Accomplishments highlighted in the Annual Report include:

  • A sewage lift station, considered a critical facility, was floodproofed by the James City Service Authority.
  • An updated Emergency Operations Plan was prepared by Emergency Management and adopted by the Board of Supervisors.
