After several years of study, discussions, negotiations, and
revision, the end is now in sight for final implementation of the FederalEmergency Management Agency’s Flood Hazard Determination Area map. Township Waterworks Coordinator Tim Schutzman
has worked diligently with the agency to make sure the maps accurately reflectcurrent conditions in Cranberry Township. At its February 22 meeting, Township Manager Jerry Andree explained how the revisions have
resulted in fewer parts of the Township being included in the official map’sflood hazard areas. FEMA had previously
determined that Cranberry’s ordinance concerning flood plain activity met theagency’s new requirements. Final
implementation of the revised official map and ordinance will be August 2.
