Floodplains

The Pennsylvania Floodplain Management Act (Act 166 of 1978) requires that all municipalities enact and enforce an ordinance to meet the requirements of the Pennsylvania Floodplain Management Act and the National Flood Insurance Program. 

What We Do:

The Adams County Conservation District maintains a hard copy library of publications, fact sheets, and technical bulletins.  These are available free of charge to any Adams County municipality or resident.
