Layer: FEMA Floodways (ID: 1)

Name: FEMA Floodways

Display Field: FLWAY

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: This layer provide the locations of Floodways within Polk County, FL.A "Regulatory Floodway" means the channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than a designated height. Communities must regulate development in these floodways to ensure that there are no increases in upstream flood elevations. For streams and other watercourses where Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), but no floodway has been designated, the community must review floodplain development on a case-by-case basis to ensure that increases in water surface elevations do not occur, or identify the need to adopt a floodway if adequate information is available.The exact data or actual detailed process of creation is unknown but is believed to have originated from FEMA and downloaded from the Florida Department of Environmental Management (FDEM) website: This data is meant to be used for planning purposes only. The dataset was believed to have been downloaded, reprojected to the NAD 1983 Florida StatePlane West FIPS 0902 (Feet) coordinate system and datum and clipped to the Polk County boundary by a Polk County GIS Analyst. The data was copied from the previous SDE on 2010-09.
