Identifier: ACC 82-026:

Scope and Contents

Contains national flood insurance rate maps published between 1972 and 1982 for various cities, towns, and unincorporated areas in South Dakota. Communities covered by the maps include Belle Fourche, Madison, Deadwood, Spearfish, Sturgis, Flandreau, Hill City, Fort Pierre, Pierre, and unincorporated areas within Pennington County. The majority of the maps were published by the National Flood Insurance Program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) between 1980 and 1982. Also included are maps of the cities of Pierre and Fort Pierre and a guide on how to read flood insurance rate maps published by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Federal Insurance Administration between 1972 and 1977.

The flood insurance rate map for a given community serves as the official map of that community depicting special hazard areas and applicable risk premium zones as delineated by FEMA. The maps are published for use by citizens, community officials, lending banks, insurance agents, and federal agencies to determine the degree of flood hazard in different areas of the community in order to consistently calculate flood insurance premium rates for those areas.
