Community Public Meeting - Inundation Maps

The City of Frederick along with Frederick County Emergency Management and Maryland Department of the Environment has restudied the existing Fishing Creek Dam’s inundation area in 2021. Due to better Hydrology and Hydraulics and Topography from the previous 2000 study, additional properties are included in the inundation area mapped. The draft map and contact list are contained in the Emergency Action Plan for the Dam. A major part of the report is the annual update of contact information.

A Community Public Meeting to discuss the changes to the inundation mapped area will be held at Lewistown Fire Hall on April 18th at 5pm to 8pm.  Address of Lewistown Fire Hall is 11101 Hessong Bridge Rd, Frederick, MD 21701

Questions or concerns may be directed to: Craig Lambert, Water Treatment Superintendent, at 301-600-1860 or by email at
