Report Flooding

We would like you to share information about the flooding you’ve experienced. Even if you have reported your flooding to 2-1-1, FEMA, or a City official, we need standardized information to calibrate stormwater models that show existing flooding conditions. Additionally, the flood data helps the City prioritize different flood projects and future watershed studies Please report any flooding you’ve experienced at: www.cityofmadison.com/reportflooding
