The City of Kettering, the State of Ohio and the federal government jointly prepared a flood insurance study to better document the flood-prone areas in the City of Kettering in 1980. Since then, the city has focused its efforts on reducing potential flooding.  As a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program, the city participates in a community outreach service that could lower your flood insurance rates.


The City of Kettering wants to make you aware of the flood hazard to your property, what the city is doing about flooding and some of things you can do to reduce your risk.
