LOMR for Sheep Creek in San Bernardino County
The effective Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), the area inundated by the base (1-percent annual chance) flood, is based on an approximate analysis and therefore designated Zone A with no Base Flood Elevations established. It has been determined that the approximate Zone A designation inaccurately represents the current flood hazards for the revision area along Sheep Creek. However, there is no detailed analysis currently available, so this LOMR will redesignate the Zone A as Zone D, which is as an undetermined, but possible, flood hazard area. Currently FEMA is conducting detailed hydrologic and hydraulic analyses along the revision area. Once these analyses are complete, a LOMR will be issued to reflect the more detailed information along Sheep Creek and this LOMR will be superseded.
