The City has planned improvements that will reduce the flood risk to structures along Channel 6 and segments of the I-5 Canal and Q Street Canal that connect Channel 6 to the Willamette River. In order to make the improvements, the City must first amend the 1985 floodplain map panels currently on file with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Additionally, new technology is now available to more accurately map the specific floodplain for an area.
Detailed maps and technical analysis of the proposed floodplain map updates are available below for review. The maps and analysis can also be reviewed in-person from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, at the Development and Public Works Department in the southeast wing of Springfield City Hall located at 225 Fifth Street in Springfield.
