Flood Hazard

The Borough of Mantoloking is vulnerable to coastal storms and hurricanes. Typically, severe winter storms, or Nor’Easters, occur each year between Mid-October and Mid-April. The entire Borough of Mantoloking is located in a special flood hazard area and is vulnerable to flooding from the Atlantic Ocean and Barnegat Bay.

Flooding is a real hazard for the entire community. The Borough is extremely susceptible to hurricanes and coastal storms which can cause damage to homes with localized flooding of streets and yards. Mantoloking Borough will provide inquirers with information from the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), including the flood zone, a property’s base flood elevation and location of the LiMWA or Coastal A Zone. In addition, the Borough will provide flood protection assistance, including site specific flood and flood related data (Flood Depth Data) and data on historical flooding in the community. The community has copies of completed Elevation Certificates available for some properties in the floodplain. These services are intended to assist in assessing the flood threat to specific properties. Please contact the Borough at (732) 475-6983 for these services and the availability of Elevation Certificates.
