The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) for the Napa Creek Area, informing the City of Napa that the Flood Insurance Study Report and Flood Insurance Rate Map have been revised. This remapping is a result of the recently completed Napa Creek Flood Protection Project and is part of the larger flood project being constructed by the Napa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with The City of Napa. The project achieved environmental restoration of Napa Creek through much of downtown while also greatly increasing flood protection to businesses and residents in the area. The new map from FEMA which acknowledges the completed work became effective November 12, 2014.
