Flood Factors across this area.

9% of properties are at risk of flooding in Brown County. A property's Flood Factor is an indicator of its comprehensive flood risk, as determined by its likelihood of flooding and the potential depth of that flood. Properties with higher Flood Factors are more likely to flood, more likely to experience high floods, or both. Learn more about Flood Factors.

Flood Risk Explorer

Flood risks vary by depth and likelihood

Major flood events are less likely to occur than smaller, more frequent events, but have a greater capacity for damage. If water reaches a building, the amount of damage, if any, will depend on the building's elevation and foundation.

Environmental Changes

Flood risks are increasing because of the environment.

A changing environment means higher seas, new weather patterns, and stronger storms. As the atmosphere warms, there is more evaporation and more water available when it rains.

A warmer atmosphere also means warmer oceans, which can intensify flooding from hurricanes and offshore storms. Sea level rise also increases coastal flood risks, as higher seas mean there's more water available when high tides and coastal storms cause flooding.

Personal Solutions

There are solutions to protect your property.

Just an inch of flooding can cost $25,000 or more, yet typical homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage. Learn more about solutions to protect your home, business, and community.

  • Cleared gutters

    Removing leaves and other debris from clogged gutters and downspouts can prevent water from pooling around a building's foundation

  • Contact city officials
    accordion caret

    Most personal protection measures will require permits from a local floodplain manager. Community adaptation efforts can reduce flood risk and lower the costs of flood insurance, and communities may have their own hazard mitigation programs, tax incentives or rebates.

  • Coatings and Sealants
    accordion caret

    A form of "dry flood-proofing," coatings and sealants that you apply to your foundation, walls, windows and doorways will help prevent flood water from leaking into your house through cracks or penetrations where utilities may come through. Sealants should meet ANSI 2510 standards.

  • Nonporous Flooring
    accordion caret

    Choosing flooring for the first level of the house that is made of ceramic tile with water-resistant mortar, interlocking tile, concrete, or other nonporous materials can help reduce damage in the event of a flood.

  • Sandbags
    accordion caret

    Sandbags can prevent or reduce flood water by acting as a barrier to divert moving water around, instead of through, buildings. Sandbags are most effective when used with plastic sheeting and stacked like bricks to form a wall. Many communities offer free sandbags when flooding is imminent.

  • Rain barrels
    accordion caret

    Rain barrels are containers connected to gutter downspouts that collect runoff from a building's roof, reducing minor flood risks. They range in size from 30 to 100 gallons, can be made of plastic or wood, and the collected rainwater can be used for activities like gardening or car washing.

  • Regraded property
    accordion caret

    By adjusting the slope (grade) around a building's foundation, water can more easily flow away from the building. Regrading may be especially effective for older homes where the grade around it may have settled over time.
