FEMA has updated its Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for the City of Garland, and the new maps will become effective on July 7, 2014.
The 100-year flood levels within Garland will not change as a result of this update; however, improved mapping technology will result in a more accurate delineation of the floodplain boundaries in the City. As a result, some property owners in Garland may be contacted by their insurance companies or mortgage holders regarding the applicability of the new map information.
The City of Garland Engineering Department may assist property owners who have questions about the 100-year floodplain and also help determine whether a given property is subject to Federal flood insurance purchase requirements.
