Floodway areas in Zone AE are defined as the floodway in the channel of a stream plus any adjacent floodplain areas that must be kept free of encroachment so that the 1 percent annual chance flood can be carried out without substantial increases in flood heights.
Zone X is in an area of 0.2 percent annual chance of flood; areas of 1 percent annual chance of flood with average depths of less than 1-foot or with drainage areas less than 1 square mile; and areas protected by levees from 1 percent annual chance flood.View floodplain map
