Floodplains

In 1978, Pennsylvania passed the Floodplain Management Act (Act 166). Traditionally the responsibility of the Department of Community & Economic Development, Act 166 requires that a municipality pass and enforce an ordinance to meet the requirements of the Act and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The York County Conservation District does not currently have any duties and responsibilities under this program, nor does it have any enforcement responsibilities.

For more information about Floodplain Management, contact your local municipality or the York County Planning Commission.
