Check If Your Property Is In a Floodplain or Non-FEMA Risk Area
Find out if your flood risk is low, moderate, or high before the next storm hits, so you can take steps to protect your home or business. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) which show the different flood zones that designate the risk.
To find your property, visit the One Address website and/or the Flood Risk Viewer and type in your address. You can also email email@example.com for assistance in determining flood risks or obtaining documents.
Due to the extensive reported flooding risks citywide outside of FEMA floodplains and the limited resources to help lessen these risks, a policy is necessary to provide city staff and the community with guidance for mapping, communication and regulating local flood risks. A Non-FEMA Flood Risk Area stakeholder working group was formed to help with guidance in forming a policy. For more information visit Non-FEMA Flood Risk Area.
Residents of Fort Worth can obtain flood information concerning flooding, flood maps, mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements, and flood zone determinations from the City of Fort Worth's Transportation & Public Works Department (Stormwater Management Division) located at City Hall or by calling 817-392-6261.
Digital copies of Elevation Certificates (EC) for some properties are on file and available upon request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If the City does not have an EC on file and one is needed for insurance or development purposes, you will need to hire a surveyor or engineer to complete it.
Real-time river gauge information is available through the National Weather Service.
