Local Flood Information

The following information is provided as a tool for individuals to become aware that a significant amount of flood information is available for flood prone properties.  Additional questions or concerns should be directed to the Borough Manager at (570) 523-3614 or through email:  wlowthert@lewisburgborough.org

Residents can review their specific property location relative to the “If the Property is in the Floodway” and/or “If the Property is in a Repetitive Loss Area.”  Finding your property, one can then review its location with the map information located under “Local Flood Hazard Maps” to see how individual storms (Susquehanna River Crest height predictions) might impact their property.

Local Flood Hazard Maps

The maps below were prepared to provide a general illustration of the limits of flood inundation based on the river gauge readings. For example if there is a warning that the West Branch Susquehanna River is forecast to reach a flood height of 28 feet, click on the map entitled, “LbgBase28ft” to understand the areas to be affected.

Residents should also be aware that the Borough maintains flood stage poles throughout the Borough and near residential areas most prone to flooding.  These poles also correlate to the river gage to help residents understand the potential depth of flooding that may occur.

The maps below, the flood stage poles and the river gauge also correlate to the historic flood events listed in the “Local Flood Hazard” section of this website.
