Floodplain Administration

The Engineering Department provides information about floodplain, flood hazards, flood protection, and flood proofing.

The department provides site plan review services and some site visits for floodplain assessment.

  • FEMA flood insurance rate maps, a guide to flood insurance rate maps and brochures on a variety of floodplain related topics are also available from the Engineering Department.
  • Copies of local, state, and federal publications on these topics are also available at the Terrell Public Library.
  • You may also obtain online floodplain information with the NFHL FIRMette Tool.

To determine if a particular property within the city limits lies in a flood hazard area, visit the Engineering office during regular office hours or call the City Engineer at 972-551-6600. If you are unable to call during business hours, leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
