Lots previously brought out of the flood plain may now lie partially within this new delineation. This determination is sent by FEMA to lending institutions who, in turn, may request homeowners to carry flood insurance if their a portion of their home lies within it.

That glass/straw scenario is how a well relates to an aquifer.  Our Village has two aquifers, unfortunately the first aquifer has a surface water to ground water connection.
