FEMA, the DNR, and the City have finalized an amendment to the mapped floodplain along the east side of the Wisconsin River which removed several properties from the 100 year floodplain and reclassified them to Area with Reduced Flood Risk Due to Levee.
Property owners should contact their insurance and/or mortgage companies to determine the status of their flood insurance as it pertains to their property.
Director of Public Works, Scott Schatschneider, says, “The successful LOMR process is a result of the generous cooperation of VERSO and Consolidated Water Power Company allowing the City of Stevens Point to construction the additional Seawall on top of the existing Consolidated Water Power Company Seawall.”
Mayor Mike Wiza said, “I’m very happy to see this finally come to fruition. This has been a long process and the City Staff has worked very hard to see this through. Their diligent work will save the property owners in this area thousands of dollars each year.”
