Flood Information

Flood Map Updates

The Flood Insurance Study Report and Flood Insurance Rate Maps for the community have been revised with the following:

National Flood Insurance Program

Since 1983, the City of Fremont has been a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program, which is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA has delineated portions of the City as special flood hazard areas on flood insurance rate maps. Properties within these areas may be subject to special flood insurance requirements and construction standards.

Community Rating System

In March 2001, FEMA accepted the City into the Community Rating System (CRS) with a rating of Class 7. The rating provides owners of property in special flood hazard areas a 15% reduction in premiums for flood insurance required under the National Flood Insurance Program. Property owners should review their policy to make sure they are getting the discount.

Flood Maps, Elevation Certificates, and Other Documents

As a community participating in the National Flood Insurance Program, the City of Fremont is the repository for maps, letters of map revision, letters of map amendment, and elevation certificates. These documents are available at the Engineering Division at 39550 Liberty Street. Elevation Certificates are also available online. For more flood information or questions, contact the Engineering Division at (510) 494-4718 or floodinfo@fremont.gov.
