In accordance with Part 201.6 of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000), Atlantic County, New Jersey, has developed this Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan to identify natural hazards that
threaten the County and ways to reduce future damages associated with these hazards. Following this page are the signed adoption resolutions of the County and all participating jurisdictions that have

Flood Depth Hazard Maps

Maps are broken down into 4 parts.

(1) is Action Level, where we begin to see effects of flooding and prepare to take action (Ie: flood buster pumps, flood gates).

(2) is Minor Level, where we see minor flooding in our low lying areas.

(3) is Moderate Level, where more streets that aren€™t typically covered get flooding.

(4) is Major Level, where flood water reaches depths that begin to damage property and vehicles.
