How to find flood and flood fringe maps
To find out if your property is in a floodway or flood fringe area, we recommend that you first visit the Government of Alberta's (GOA) official Flood Hazard Map. You can also find more information at the GOA's Flood Hazard mapping site.
To learn what you can do to prepare for flooding, visit our Flood Preparation page.
