Floodplain
Mapping the Risk
The first step in flood protection is knowing your flood risk. Flood risks vary from property to property, even in the same neighborhood, and can change over time due to erosion, new construction and other factors. 

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the City of Austin and the City of Pflugerville have completed a major update to the digital flood hazard maps reflecting current flood boundaries. This study integrates the most current rainfall, elevation and other key data with the latest modeling technology providing the most up-to-date picture of the area’s flood risk. 

Check your level of flood hazard. 
You may obtain more information including the depth of flooding over a building's first floor and past flood problems in the area along with a copy of an Elevation Certificate(s) on some buildings built in the floodplain.

The Floodplain Administrator will visit your property, if requested, at no charge to review its flood potential and explain ways to stop flooding or prevent flood change.  If you are in a floodplain or have had a flood, drainage or sewer back-up problem, check out these resources. 

The Floodplain Administrator can be contacted at 512-990-6300 or email

The floodplain administrator can provide all of the following Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) information:

  • Whether the property is in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) or located in a floodway.
  • The community number,
  • The panel number and suffix,
  • The date of the FIRM’s index (cover panel),
  • The FIRM zone, e.g., A, X, AE, AO, etc.,
  • The base flood elevation where shown on the FIRM,
  • The elevation datum used on the FIRM, if other than NGVD.

For this information, fill out the Request for Floodplain Information Form and return it to the floodplain administrator.

Enter your street address in the box in the upper right hand corner. Select the map as it enlarges and you can see if it is in one of the colored areas.  If so, the legend on the left will identify the flood area in which your property lies. This will assist you in determining the level of flood insurance you may choose to purchase.
