MHFD helps raise awareness of the flood risk to your home or business

Floods happen. That’s why we want to help raise awareness of the flood risks in your area as well as help you understand your role in being a responsible citizen when it comes to stream management.

To prepare for the flood season, the Flood Hazard Brochure is mailed annually to all property owners whose properties are in or near the high-risk flood zone to help them understand their flood risk and provide mitigation options.
