Floodplain Administration

Floodplain regulation and management is important to our community. Although not a common occurrence, much of the City of Carmel has experienced significant flooding in the past. To better understand, promote safety and manage streams, rivers, floodplain systems and storm water, the City of Carmel has incorporated several ways to do this.

We are part of the FEMA Community Rating System, have established Carmel's Floodplain Ordinance, participate in the Hamilton County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan, work closely with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) as well as the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), and have established good Storm Water Management practices.

For more information on the City of Carmel’s flood program contact our Floodplain Manager in the Department of Community Services at 317-571-2444.
