How do I find out if my property is in a floodplain?

You can request this information in writing (email, fax, or deliver requests) to the County Floodplain Administrator.

To assure we have the correct location, please submit with your request:

  • Randall Appraisal District identification number (R-Number)
  • Physical address
  • Legal description of the property

You may also use the FEMA Map Service Center and Flood Map Store. Digital versions and images of flood maps are now available for viewing and printing from the online FEMA Flood Map Store. The Flood Map Store allows users to create a FIRMette at no cost. A FIRMette is a section of the flood hazard map at 100% scale that can be printed on standard paper sizes.
