If you own a home in Muskingum County and are required to have flood insurance, you may not need it in 2004. Muskingum County engineers are working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency on new flood maps. Depending on the maps, your name could be removed from the list of flood insurance buyers. The last devastating flood that our county faced was in 1913, so county engineers feel it's not necessary for residents to pay additional flood insurance which they don't need. The mapping program is scheduled to start in 2004 and is expected to be finished by 2005.
