Welcome to the official site for FEMA's Great Lakes Coastal Flood Study, the comprehensive storm and wind study of the Great Lakes basin for the purpose of updating the coastal flood hazard information and Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for Great Lakes coastal communities. Below you’ll find a list of the most recent meetings with their agendas, links to preliminary maps, and presentations. To the left you’ll find additional Great Lakes Coastal Flood Study content.

FEMA created this self-guided tutorial on coastal flood mapping that provides important information to coastal communities and their residents. FEMA’s “Coastal Hazards and Coastal Mapping: A Visual Guide” is a glossary of coastal mapping terms and a companion to the tutorial.

Inland Scoping Schedule for Minnesota and Wisconsin Counties

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducts scoping meetings to determine the riverine flood mapping update needs. These efforts are combined with the lake-wide coastal flood hazard mapping effort with the outcomes constituting the first basin-wide update of water-level statistics and flood hazard data compiled by the United States government for the Great Lakes in 25 years.

Under these riverine scoping efforts, a key phase in this study process is FEMA’s consultation with local communities through the conduct of a scoping meeting and the collection of data. FEMA uses these scoping meetings and follow-up conversation to collect information that will contribute to a better understanding of local flood risk conditions. A second purpose of this outreach is to provide a venue for sharing information related to study methodology and schedules.
