EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2018, County of Hawaii, Department of Public Works, Engineering Division will no longer be processing Flood Zone Determination Requests.  

Why is the County of Hawaii no longer providing Flood Zone Determinations?

The reason the County of Hawaii is no longer providing Flood Zone Determinations is because the effective Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) are now readily available online.  In an effort that took 10+ years, the FEMA FIRMs were finally digitized, updated, and made effective on 09/29/17.  This incorporated multiple flood mapping studies done around the island.
