Hi,

I'm looking to buying a house in either Verona, West Caldwell or Roseland in Essex County.

Wonder if someone could tell if the following areas are in the flood zone or have any flooding issues?

1) Runnymede Rd where Egan field is
2) Passaic Avenue between Wilson Elementary School and Westville Avenue Pool
3) Clinton Road next to West Caldwell Public Library
4) Hillside Avenue next to Verona Park/Forest Avenue Elementary School
5) Triangle between Livingston Ave, Eagle Rock Ave, and Becker Farm Rd

Also, is there a definite way to tell if these areas having flooding problem?

I checked out this map here but couldn't zoom in to the area that I'm interested in

I have lived in Essex County for almost 10 years and I have never heard of flooding in any of these towns. There is no major river or body of water in any of these areas. Unless there is some small brook or stream going through the property I would not be concerned.

I lived in and around those general areas since the mid '60's and have never seen any flooding problems of any magnitude. By the river in Little Falls and near the Willowbrook Mall is where I would be careful of.
