The Engineering Department will provide flood zone determinations for citizens, lenders, insurance agents and real estate offices in the Bryan area. Just call or email us and give us a property address or legal description of the property you would like a determination for and contact information on how we can reach you. Turnaround time depends on staff workload but usually happens within 2 days.
All determinations are made using the "FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps for Brazos County, Texas and Incorporated Areas" with an effective date of July 2, 1992. These maps are the basis of Special Flood Hazard Area information and designate Zone A and AE areas. In the Zone AE areas, we can also provide Base Flood Elevations as well as known floodway locations. We will also cross reference more recent studies that have occurred without benefit of Letter of Map Revision to give you the most comprehensive determination possible.
We are not allowed to provide this service for parcels located outside of the Bryan City Limits. Please contact the City of College Station or the Brazos County Engineer's Office for these areas. A Professional Flood Determination Company, Professional Engineer or Professional Land Surveyor should be contacted to make further determinations.
We also maintain records of all completed elevation certificates at our offices in the Municipal Building at 300 S. Texas Ave. Please contact us if you have any questions.
