Officials to Re-Examine Austin Flood Maps

Posted on November 19th, 2010 No Comments

Federal and City of Austin officials announced they will re-examine the likelihood of flooding in several areas of the city.

According to city officials, the three-year process could affect whether property owners must buy flood insurance. Federal officials said last week flood plan maps are out of date and possibly inaccurate.The city has not identified any areas it considers to be at higher flood risk than listed, but officials say waterways like Shoal, Bull, and Boggy creeks may be more likely to overrun their banks than previously believed.

The City Council last week approved $1.1 million for the map updates. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will also spend $1.1 million. Supervising engineer at the city’s Watershed Protection Department Kevin Shunk said safety is the agency’s top priority. “The reason to [re-do flood maps] is to protect citizens,” Shunk said. “It’s to let them know what the risk of flooding actually is, so they can take proper steps to prepare for it.”

"Wow Total Cleaning is great!"

Rating: 5

Wow Total Cleaning is great! My carpets look brand new again - and they were looking pretty bad! I was shocked when I came home to pristine white carpets. And they still look good. Their prices are great. They were in and out in 30 minutes. My neighbors who have alot of dogs always use them to clean their carpet. I also just realized they have a maids service and intend to give that a try too. They don't call it Wow for nothing, you too could enter your home saying WOW!
