Flooding is a potential costly hazard in the City of Pflugerville, consequently, the first step in flood protection is knowing your flood risk. Flood risks vary from property to property, even in the same neighborhood and risks 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.
Planners, local officials, engineers and builders can use the maps to determine where and how to build new structures and developments. Residents and businesses can use the maps to learn their risk, and decide the financial steps needed to protect against damage and loss.
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 Manager 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.
