The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issues maps that are used to regulate development projects in the floodplain and establish flood insurance rates. These maps are called Flood Insurance Rate Maps or FIRMs. The Village of Lisle Floodplain Map is a simplified look at the floodplains in Lisle. To review a detailed map of the floodplain, use the Village's Online Floodplain Map.

These maps are revised by the county on a regular basis and can vary from the FIRMs. These maps are large files and may load slowly.
