Building Limitations

The purpose of the ordinance codified in this chapter is to identify and protect critical areas as required by the
Growth Management Act of 1990
 (Chapter 17, Laws of 1990)

FEMA Flood Zones

This map represents the updated Flood Zones for Kitsap County as identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This data was updated in December of 2007, after a series of detailed hydrologic studies in various parts of the county where increased development has occurred.

Streams and Surface Waters

This map represents the streams, surface waters, and wetlands as identified by the Wa. DNR. Also included are wetlands identified in the NWI, and soils identified as hydric by the NRCS. Hydric soils are defined as those that are saturated, flooded, or ponded long enough during the growing season to develop anaerobic conditions in the upper part, and can be considered potential unmapped wetlands

Streams and Surface Waters
This map is a variation of the one presented above, with the same stream, wetland, and hydric soil features. It also includes a hillshade background, data for the adjoining counties, and lacks the parcel boundaries so that the environmental data can be better presented.

Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas
This map delineates those areas which recharge aquifers are used as or have the potential to be used as a significant potable water supply and have been deemed to be highly susceptible to the introduction of pollutants.

Geologic Hazards

Kitsap County's Geologic Hazards and Geologic Areas of Concern. Geologically critical areas are places highly susceptible to erosion, landslides, earthquakes or other geologic events.

This map depicts locations for faults that are believed to be sources of significant earthquakes (that is, those of magnitude 6 or greater) during the Quaternary (the past 1,600,000 years).  Locations of faults were taken from published literature; these investigations were carried out at a variety of scales of observation, hence some faults will be located more precisely and accurately than others.

Watersheds of Kitsap County
Defines the named watersheds of Kitsap County. Includes parcels, streams, and water bodies. While this data was created from a 30 meter resolution Digital Elevation Model, it is being displayed over a 6 foot resolution LiDAR hillshade. Some errors may be noted between the hydrology, the watershed boundaries, and the apparent surface topography seen in the hillshade.

Elevation Model / Basemap
This map represents a composite of the bathymetry and topography for Puget Sound, Hood Canal, and the surrounding lowlands. This is a general purpose digital elevation model (DEM) designed to address the needs of researchers and managers who need to consider the terrestrial and marine topography as a seamless unit. The data is derived from sources varying from state-of-the-art mapping systems such as laser altimetry and swath bathymetry to NOS Soundings and lead-line soundings from the 1930's. A Special thank you to Ralph Haugerud, Harvey Greenberg, David Finlayson and Elizabeth Cassel without whose assistance this DEM could not have been completed. Please support public access to publicly funded data so that projects like this can be possible.

Drift Cells

Littoral drift, or shore drift, is the process by which beach sediment is moved along the shoreline. Heightened concerns about the adverse impact of shoreline modifications on geologic processes, and consequently, on nearshore biological resources has increased the need to provide information on longshore sediment transport. This map denotes the extent of individual littoral cells and the direction of net shore-drift within each, but only for the shorelines of Kitsap County. Drift Cells for adjoining counties are excluded from this map.

Geologic Map Units

This map shows the polygon information defining the extent, and label of each geologic unit, as defined by the State of Washington, Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geology and Earth Resources, in the digital 1:100,000-scale Geology of Washington State.

Wa DFW Habitat Assessment

The Local Habitat Assessment is a methodology to map current habitat condition at a countywide and watershed scale. The Assessment combines regional biodiversity priorities with local indicators of habitat condition, such as land conversion, road density, and fish and wildlife priority areas. It is a broad-brush approach intended to inform county land use planning. It may help with: identifying urban growth boundaries, informing incentive programs, establishing green space networks, guiding acquisition or easement programs, and identifying opportunities for habitat connectivity.


Soil Survey

This map shows the soil names as described in the publication "Soil Survey of Kitsap County Area, Washington", National Cooperative Soil Survey, 1980.
