Floodplain Management

The purpose and intent of the Floodplain Management Ordinance is to alleviate flood problems and to provide for protection from flooding hazards and water drainage problems due to the proximity of the Susquehanna River and the Yellow Breeches Creek to the Borough of New Cumberland. Within the floodplain, development is restricted and regulated, and a building permit may be required prior to any construction or development.

Before you proceed with a project, please contact the Building Code Official, Approved Codes, at (717) 506-0464 for more information.
