You know homeowners insurance is essential to protect property from disasters such as fires and most weather events, but did you know many areas also require a separate policy to cover flood damage?

A Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and Zone information are available by request from Douglas County’s Engineering Division to residents of unincorporated Douglas County to help you determine if flood insurance is required.

The following is provided as a public service to Douglas County residents upon request:

This floodplain determination service is one element of the County’s Floodplain Management Program, the implementation of which leads to discounted flood insurance rates for residents of unincorporated Douglas County.

To inquire visit our Flood Plain Information web page and click on the Flood Insurance Rate Map.

A form may also be requested by calling the Engineering Division at 303.660.7490 or visiting their office located at 100 Third St. in Castle Rock.

Please note:  This service does not relieve a lending institution from its responsibility of determining if flood insurance should be required as a condition of a loan.  In some cases, if the property is too close to the Special Flood Hazard Area boundary, citizens may be advised that a FIRM zone determination cannot be made.
