Flooding Info

Colchester contains approximately 3,259 acres in the floodplain. There are 81 buildings in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and roughly 20 of these properties have flood insurance policies. The majority of flooding that Colchester has been subject to historically has been lake flooding that is somewhat foreseeable and can be planned for in advance. 

We are here to help!

Staff from the Planning & Zoning Office are willing to meet with you at your site to review your specific flooding problems and risks. We will provide on-on-one advice regarding the building regulations required to comply with federal flood standards. For questions or to schedule an appointment, please call the Office at 802-264-5606 or email pzinfo@colchestervt.gov.
