FEMA Flood Elevations


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Map for the City of Winona is located in the Engineering Office, Room 205, City Hall. To determine if your property is located in a floodplain and whether or not flood insurance would be required, call the Engineering Office at 507-457-8269.

Individual Panel Maps can be purchased at the Engineering Office. Due to size, the maps are unavailable online; however, you can email Tara Fjetland to request a map (.pdf file) be emailed to you.

Elevation Certificates

Elevation Certificate must be prepared and certified by either a land surveyor, engineer, or architect who is authorized by state, or local law to certify elevation information. Community officials who are authorized by local law or ordinance to provide floodplain management information may also sign the certificate. 

To request the City to perform the necessary survey work and prepare the elevation certificate you will need to complete the Elevation Certificate Request Form or Elevation Certificate Request Fill In Form and submit with payment of $250.
