  • Water surface elevations of the base flood for the central Arizona Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM)
  • Maricopa County Flood Control District
  • 2010
  • Water surface elevations of the base flood as approved by the Federal mergency management Agency (FEMA) for the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). The base flood elevation, in feet, is in relation to the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Profile baselines are for the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). The cross section data are used for the production of Flood Insurance Rate Maps. The Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) show different floodplains with different zone designations. These are primarily for insurance rating purposes, but the zone differentiation can be very helpful for other floodplain management purposes. The differentiated floodplain zones are used for the production of Flood Insurance Rate Maps. Maricopa County has been subdivided into FIRM panels for the publication and distribution of FIRMs. Profile baselines are for the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM).
