Frequently Flooded

Frequently flooded areas are areas located along major rivers, streams, and coastal areas that are inundated by a depth, velocity, intensity, and frequency of flood waters during major events that are of such a magnitude that they pose significant, and potentially devastating, risks to human life and property.

Development activities proposed within frequently flood areas must mitigate for flood hazards and conform to the provisions of Whatcom County Code Title 17 – Flood Damage Prevention.
