The Flood Hazard

The local flood hazard is caused by Lindsborg’s flat terrain and slow storm water runoff. Cow Creek is in the 1% Special Flood Hazard Area, and poses a flash flooding threat because of the large drainage area (345 acres) and lack of elevation drop.

But other areas have risk, too. In 2013, the Westview channel overtopped into the West Normal and Northridge neighborhoods, causing significant basement flooding and millions of dollars in losses. Street flooding on the city’s east side has resulted in stalled and water-damaged vehicles on Harrison Street.

Find out if your property is in the regulated floodplain by calling the Community Development Department at City Hall, 227-3355.
