Unincorporated Chatham County adopted an ordinance, the Flood Damage Protection Ordinance (FDPO) that requires all construction, additions, conversions, and/or development located in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) comply with certain standards to minimize damage from flooding. The FDPO has restrictions on the placement of fill for SFHA and residents need to understand if a Limit of Moderate Wave Action (LiMWA) impacts their plans and permit.
