Black Hawk County, IA, August 27, 2010 -- Spurred by 2008 flooding and to increase flood protection on new construction and some structures damaged in previous floods, Black Hawk County has enacted one of the most stringent flooding ordinances in the state -- if not the nation. Under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), communities that join NFIP must pass ordinances controlling development in floodways and 100-year flood plain.
