2015 Letter of Map Revision
In May of 2015, FEMA, the DNR, and the City finalized an amendment to the mapped floodplain along the east side of the Wisconsin River which removed several properties from the 100 year floodplain and reclassified them to "Area with Reduced Flood Risk Due to Levee." Affected property owners should contact their insurance and/or mortgage companies to determine the status of their flood insurance as it pertains to their property. 

The successful LOMR process was a result of the generous cooperation of VERSO and Consolidated Water Power Company allowing the City of Stevens Point to construction the additional Seawall on top of the existing Consolidated Water Power Company Seawall.
