Know Your Flood Risk

Flooding is the most common and costly natural disaster. However, most residents don’t know how to determine their flood risk.

The City of Arlington Public Works and Transportation Department’s Stormwater Education Specialist will present “Know Your Flood Risk” from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 2 at the Southwest Branch Library, 3311 SW Green Oaks Blvd.

This presentation is designed to provide property owners and tenets in the City of Arlington with information on how to determine flood risk by understanding the types of flooding common to our community, the natural functions of our floodplains, and community floodplain management.

The presentation will also cover flood hazard zones, FEMA flood insurance rate maps (FIRMS) and the National Flood Insurance Program.
