The preferred method for establishing flood zones is by means of detailed engineering flood predictions and hydraulic studies; there are situations where such studies will be delayed for a number of years. Rather than leave areas unregulated, such as scattered flood plains used for recreation and agriculture, detailed soil survey information can be used, especially in mature landscapes, to delineate regulatory flood hazard areas. The legal considerations relevant to Wisconsin flood plain zoning, as well as the advantages and limitations of using soils information for establishing flood plains, are identified.
