Preliminary Flood Maps in Galveston Co, TX Ready for Public View
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Denton, TX – Homeowners, renters and business owners in Galveston County, Texas are encouraged to look over newly released preliminary flood maps in order to determine their flood risks and make informed decisions.

Galveston County officials and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are presenting the preliminary maps to communities and unincorporated areas in order to help leaders and residents identify known flood risks and use that information to make decisions about buying flood insurance and how the community should move forward with any development.

The Texas-based coastal flood mapping effort follows the release of a new, comprehensive storm surge study that gives updated information on coastal flood risks. To share that data, public workshops are scheduled in the county where interested citizens can obtain more information about the proposed changes.

“As we work together with our state and local partners to bring this critical information to the county, we ask that everyone review the maps to understand what flood risks are involved,” said FEMA R6 Regional Administrator Tony Robinson. “The role of the community as an active partner in the flood mapping process is very important.”

Additional information is available, including links to the interactive mapping website on www.txchart.com. Residents can also contact the Galveston County Floodplain Administrator for more details.
