Flood Plain Management

The city of Wheeling contains a significant amount of land located in the flood plain.  Development in the floodplain requires special attention and certain precautions must be undertaken.  Prior to planning a project, confirm the location of the property as it pertains to the flood zone using the flood map link provided under “Resources ”.  Then, contact the Flood Plain Manager to discuss your project.
