Floodplain Administration


The City of Bismarck is a participant of the National Floodplain Insurance Program (NFIP). As a participating community, the City of Bismarck is responsible for providing local floodplain management. This is done by utilizing the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), adopting ordinances, and enforcing construction regulations. Through the City of Bismarck’s continued participation in the NFIP, flood insurance is made available to the citizens living within the zoning jurisdiction of the City of Bismarck.
