Flood Info & Maps

Flooding is a serious natural threat in the Town of Shandaken. We adhere to strict guidelines in order to our homes and businesses as many are relegated to the valley floors and are located within or near the regulatory floodplain as designated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). Here is a link regarding the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) if you wish a preliminary understanding of floodplains, their functions and measures you can take to provide protections for your property and families:

We also have staff available (M-F/9am- 3pm) to answer any questions you may have regarding your property in relation to the floodplain.

The following link can provide a detailed picture of your home’s location in or near the flood plain.
