Fort Worth Stormwater Management

What is the Floodplain Management Plan?

The City of Fort Worth has developed a Floodplain Management Plan for the entire city. This is part of a growing public planning and interaction program led by the Stormwater Management Division.

This plan identifies 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 residents and businesses.
