The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released preliminary Flood Maps for the North East Area.

The City of El Paso, and El Paso Water are working together to bring this information to the public in order to assist property owners to identify flood zones and to help owners to make decisions regarding flood insurance.

As a result of the revision, the 1% annual chance water surface elevation shall increase, decrease and be established, and the 1% annual chance floodplain shall widen, narrow  and be established within the area of revision.

We encourage all affected owners to review the preliminary maps and submit any comments to this office. Contact us at:
