Flood Information Center

The Flood Information Center is meant to serve as a “one stop” flood information source that will assist county residents by:

  • Promoting flood awareness and understanding of how floodplains work.
  • Providing information on how to assess a property's unique flood risk.
  • Offering practical guidance on preparing for floods, minimizing flood damage and maintaining safety, and recovering from flood events.
  • Providing information on federal mitigation programs for long-lasting flood protection.
  • Answering common questions about where to get information, as well as how the county notifies citizens of a flood emergency.
  • Providing a list of flood emergency phone numbers, websites and maps, including the Real-Time Flood Warning Info Map.

Emergency Notification

The Public Works Surface Water Management (SWM) and Road Maintenance divisions partner with the Department of Emergency Management (DEM) to reduce threats from major flooding and to improve emergency response to citizens, businesses, and agencies during times of flood events.

DEM uses the SnoCoAlerts to warn the public of emergencies. When threatened areas have been identified, DEM loads data about these areas into AlertSense" in order to notify residents of flood conditions. DEM also works with the Sheriff’s Office on evacuations, as they are needed.

For all emergencies, dial 9-1-1.
