Floodplain Permits

All developments within the 100-yr. floodplain (not just construction of buildings, but filling, excavation, fences, etc.) are required to obtain a City of St. Charles Permit. Applications must be made prior to doing any work in a floodplain area. Contact the City of St. Charles Public Works Engineering Division for information at 630-377-4486 or visit the Floodplain page of our website. You may report illegal development activities to the above number as well.

Flood Insurance Information

Because the City of St. Charles is a member of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), anyone can purchase flood insurance through his or her local insurance agent via the NFIP. There is a 30-day waiting period for flood insurance coverage to begin.
 
A home located within a Special Flood Hazard Area has a 26% chance of being damaged by a flood over the life of a 30-year mortgage, and your homeowner’s insurance will not cover flood damage.

Local Flood Hazard Awareness

After a wetter than normal spring, the summer so far has seen moderate rainfall. And while St. Charles generally has not experienced wide spread damage due to flooding, there are local flood hazard areas throughout Kane County.  Flooding from the Fox River, Ferson Creek, State Street Creek, 7th Avenue Creek, and Norton Creek usually can be forecast in advance.
