Floodplain Information

Find out if your property (within the Town of Oro Valley) is in or near a floodplain

The Floodplain Inquiry Map is available by simply entering your address into the property search box in the map. However, the information obtained through the Floodplain Inquiry Map is not an official flood zone determination for flood insurance purposes.  For assistance with the map, please contact 520-229-4879.  

An official floodplain determination can be provided by submitting your request through the Oro Valley Customer Portal.  A fee of $15.00 is required to provide this determination. 

Disclaimer:  While using the Customer Portal, you will see it refers to Permits. Your final document informing you of the floodplain status of the lot will be titled as a Permit. The word permit is only being used because the portal system we are using to process this request is also the primary software for issuing building permits. However, the information provided in the document is not a permit to build. The floodplain determination provides results of the floodplain status for the property.  

In the Customer Portal, create an account or log in with an existing account.
