The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) ranks Travis County among the fastest growing areas in the nation and in the top 10 percent of flood-damage prone communities. Most of the former FEMA floodplain maps for Travis County were based on out-of-date technical data prepared up to 25-years ago. In March 2006, FEMA released the new preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Studies (FIS) to Travis County. The updated maps went into effect in 2008.
Floodplain maps are available on the City of Austin website.
To receive an electronic copy of the floodplain map that covers your area, please e-mail your address to: FloodMapInfo@co.travis.tx.us.
Travis County only has floodplain jurisdiction in the unincorporated areas of the County (outside city limits). If your property is located within a city please contact your local officials.
