I’ve lived here all of my life and it’s never flooded, the maps must be wrong?

The maps are created to reflect the conditions of the watershed. Some areas have not undergone a detailed hydraulic study which may result in more conservative floodplain areas. There is also a chance that flood waters in this area have not exceeded the 100-year flood level (BFE). Considering your experience, it may be worth your time and expense to hire a surveyor to determine the actual elevation at your property and compare that to the BFE in this area. If you’re right, we just need to submit the elevation certificate to FEMA and get the map corrected.
