New flood zone maps available in municipal offices

NORWICH – Property owners are advised to refer to drafts of new Federal Emergency Management Agency flood zone maps now available in municipal offices to determine whether they may need to purchase flood insurance.

Municipalities will be required to officially adopt the maps and a flood insurance study into local law by the end of 2010.
