Flood Insurance and FEMA
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) accredits levee systems. FEMA began de-accreditation of the Dallas Levee System April 2009. This process takes 18 to 24 months. The City’s goal is to have the Levee Remediation Plan portion of the System Study complete and fixes made prior to FEMA’s final map revision. Certification is conducted by a licensed professional engineer as requested by the City of Dallas or through a federal agency responsible for the levee system design. Please visit this Web site for updates on the levee system.
Living behind a levee always has a risk. The City has a comprehensive emergency evacuation plan for the entire City to help notify you before a flooding emergency.
