On August 28, 2019, the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issued new or revised Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) panels for the Township of Mahwah and Bergen County. It is vital for property owners to understand their risk, and take advantage of tools and programs available to them, including flood insurance, to help reduce flooding impacts.
The FIRMs indicate flood-prone areas in the Township of Mahwah and insurance companies use FIRMs to determine flood insurance rates for buildings and contents. Mahwah residents and property owners are encouraged to learn more about their flood risk. The affected areas in the Township of Mahwah are areas along the Ramapo River, Ho-Ho-Kus Brook, Darlington Brook, Valentine Brook, Masonicus Brook, Mahwah River, Ramsey Brook and tributaries to these water bodies.
