Floodplain zoning regulations are intended to protect life, health and property and reduce flood losses. Floodplain regulations and standards do not prohibit development, but rather protect buildings and property from the effects of flooding.
The City of Fond du Lac is a participating community in the National Flood Insurance Program. All communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program must comply with both federal and state requirements, and failure to do so could result in suspension from the program. Fond du Lac's floodplain zoning ordinance mirrors state and federal floodplain regulations. In exchange for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), federally backed flood insurance is made available to homeowners, renters, and business owners.
