Floodplain Management Plan

What is the Floodplain Management Plan?

The City of Fort Worth is working on a Floodplain Management Plan for the entire city. This will be the first part of a growing public planning and interaction program being led by the Stormwater Management Division.

This plan will identify flood risks, their impact on the community and a prioritized action plan for reducing flood risks.

An eye on the bottom line

By completing this plan, the city will not only be on a path to becoming safer and more resilient to flooding hazards, but it will also improve Fort Worth's National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) score. Improving the city’s CRS score will reduce eligible flood insurance premiums, which will save money for citizens and businesses.
