The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers presented the results of a Section 22 Floodplain Mapping Study before a packed Sheridan City Council Chambers Tuesday. In attendance were members from the City Council, County Commission, City and County staff and local engineers. The floodplain maps for Sheridan County haven't been updated since the late 1970's, which is why this new study will be so beneficial says County Public Works Director Rod Liesinger.

Liesinger said that the data has been submitted to the Region 8 FEMA Officein Denver.

Liesinger said that with today's technology, the mapping is so much more detailed and defined, that it actually shows that some of the floodplains have been reduced from the previous model that was some 30 years ago.
