Findlay Levee Ruled ‘Unviable’
Listen to the Story
There’s more bad news for the flood-prone city of Findlay: federal regulators have decertified the city’s only earthen levee.
Findlay flood plane manager Todd Richard said it’s not exactly clear when the Federal Emergency Management Agency decertified the levee, saying it was no longer viable. Richard said he discovered the change during a regular review of flood maps.
“Through our remapping process, the levee was decertified, which means the area immediately in that vicinity is now a mapped flood plane,” Richard said.
That means most people living there will be required to have flood insurance, which can be expensive and hard to obtain.
Findlay has been devastated by near-yearly floods since 2007, when the Blanchard River rose seven feet above flood stage and inundated much of the city.
