Spokane County Flood Damage
Protection Ordinance Update 2010


The Spokane County Flood Damage Protection Code (Chapter 3.20) is being revised, initially to incorporate the title of the new Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and DFIRMs, update to the new FEMA terminology and update fees to the current Engineering & Roads fee schedule.  At the same time we are proposing some additional revisions and additions including: conditions when an engineering study can be waived for encroachments,  elevation certification waiver if well outside of the flood hazard area, a "mid-construction" elevation certification requirement for construction of structures in or near a flood hazard area, "wet" floodproofing option for agricultural and accessory structures and engineering certification of ability to withstand 100-year flows for all proposed works in the floodplain that have potential impact to public health, safety and property.
