* Requesting Floodplain Determination (for flood insurance, looking at buying property, to get base flood elevation for building, and more!)
The KPB Floodplain Management Program was established with KPB Ordinance 86-97 and adopted by the Assembly on November 18, 1986. The program conforms to the National Flood Insurance Program, and applies to certain areas within the Borough boundary.
In brief, the purpose and intent of this program is to insure the natural and beneficial functions of floodplains, and require certain building standards so as to reduce losses to life and property.
