Phase 2 covers the western watersheds, shown on the map above in green. Please note that Phase 2 floodplain remapping includes parts of the Catawba River but does not include most lakefront property along Lake Norman or Lake Wylie.
Draft floodplain maps for Phase 2
Updated floodplain maps for Phase 2 became Preliminary on February 5, 2014. This means the new can be used for some building regulations. But during the Preliminary stage, the new floodplain maps are not used for flood insurance purposes.
Public meetings will be held to show the Phase 2 preliminary maps to the public and get input.

After the public meetings, the floodplain maps will be sent to FEMA for a mandatory, year-long review. The Phase 2 maps are expected to become effective in 2015.
Northeast Mecklenburg watersheds, shown on the map above in yellow, are the third phase of Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s floodplain remapping effort. Draft versions of these floodplain maps are not available yet.
Engineering and surveying is underway in the Phase 3 area. Draft maps will be created when all of the required data is collected. Public meetings will be held in late 2014 to explain the floodplain maps and take comments about them.
Phase 3 maps are expected to become effective in 2016.
The final remapping phase of local floodplains will be along Lake Norman and Lake Wylie. No engineering work has begun yet for Phase 4.
