How do I find out what flood zone my property is in? Do I need flood insurance?

Millburn Township is a participating community in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the Engineering Department has the Flood Insurance Rate Maps published by FEMA.  The flood zones are delineated on the maps and are available for inspection at Town Hall or online at The Township Engineering Department can tell you what zone you are in. Flood insurance may be required by the lending company if your property is located in a flood zone; however the Township is not involved in that decision.  

The Township does not provide flood elevation certificates. That is a service that may only be performed by a New Jersey Professional Land Surveyor.
