Process description:
Areas designated in this data set as HAZARD/DAMAGE or NUISANCE FLOODING AREAS represent proximity to past-reported localized flooding problem areas. These areas were determined based on observed or reported (anecdotal) flooding, and therefore the map reflects no knowledge regarding duration, extent, or frequency of flooding. The exact location and limits of the problem areas are not indicated with any reliable degree of accuracy and may not be known. HAZARD/DAMAGE FLOODING AREAS represent proximity to areas reported to or observed to have experienced flooding of occupied residential and nonresidential structures and roadways, and which in some cases resulted or had the potential to result in property damage, loss of revenue, or safety hazards. NUISANCE FLOODING AREAS represent proximity to areas reported or observed to have experienced shallow flooding of non-occupied structures such as sheds, garages, or pools, and possibly roadways, but to a lesser extent than areas with the HAZARD/DAMAGE designation.
Supplemental_Information:
Attributes were determined by Stormwater Management staff based on field investigation and are believed to be correct.Is not comprehensive for areas outside the City of Tallahassee corporate limits. Reflects  reports/complaints received, therefore may under report flooding problem areas in undeveloped areas. Additional flooding problem areas may exist that are not shown on the map. Horizontal position is very generalized. This is not a parcel-specific data set and is intended to show general location only. Recommended Maximum Map Scale = 1:24000 Delineated on paper street map by COT Streets and Drainage, then digitized into Arc/Info. Additional areas were designated by Stormwater Management Division staff.
