Ordering of layers

I am building an ArcGIS online map showing RSEI facilities and Census Block Groups. Both appear to be map layers (the RSEI facilities layer does not seem to be a feature layer). I can't get the RSEI facilities layer to layer above the census layer so that the RSEI facilities show on top of the census layer. I can't move the RSEI layer above the census layer. And, I can't move the census layer to basemap. Any suggestions?

Is the RSEI layer a Map Service?  Do you have the URL?

Map Services can't sit above Feature Services I don't think (for whatever Esrieason).

If you can specify the feature by REST endpoint index 'ServiceName/MapServer/0' instead, then it acts as a feature layer which you can then put on top.

David,

Thank you for your reply.  I am an amateur at GIS mapping so don't know if or how I could "specify the feature by REST endpoint index 'ServiceName/MapServer/0' instead."  My developing map can be viewed at https://arcg.is/TaqLn0.  I am trying to get the RSEI "Map Image Layer" to show on top of the USA Census Redistricting Block/Block Group "Feature Layers." 

The RSEI Map Image Layer is from https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c87458d1dfaf4885846f1d4a9938fc05and hazard - Overview (arcg...

The Census Feature Layer is from https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=d1105f1e65a743cc84fc12c034625fc7

I understand that feature layers are designed to show on top of map image layers. In this case I want the reverse or to modify the layers to accomplish the same result.

Ok I've tested this and it works.

In your Web Map, 'Add Layer from Web', add the following layers individually then reorder them as needed.

https://geopub.epa.gov/arcgis/rest/services/EMEF/rsei_2018/MapServer/1
