(a) The FP Overlay Areas described in § 82.14.040 (Floodplain Safety Review Areas) are applied to areas of special flood hazard identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the Federal Insurance Administration in a scientific and engineering report entitled “Flood Insurance Study for San Bernardino County, California and Incorporated Areas,” initially prepared in 1978, which has subsequent updates, with accompanying Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). Subsequent report and map updates that may be published in the future shall further identify additional flood hazard areas or areas, designated by the County Flood Control District that are areas of undetermined, but possible, shallow flooding. The most current copies of the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and the FIRMs are on file at the Department of Public Works.
(b) FIS establishes the minimum areas to which the FP Overlays may be applied. Additional areas may be added after studies for the areas are prepared by the Flood Control District or other governmental agencies (e.g., Corps of Engineers).
