Possible uses and use restrictions...

Available information identifies areas subject to flooding and flood losses from streams, lakes, and oceans and describes flood hazard at proposed building sites. It can be used as a basis for planning flood plain use, for flood emergency preparedness planning, for hurricane evacuation and preparedness planning, for assistance in developing flood plain regulations, for setting elevations for flood proofing, and implementing flood proofing measures, and for indicating areas to be acquired for open space. Activities also include interpretation of technical information and related planning assistance and guidance toward prudent use of flood plains. Services are available to States and local governments without charge, but within annual funding limitations on request. Services are available to Federal agencies on a fully reimbursable basis. Services are available to the private sector on a pay first basis.
