The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be releasing new floodplain maps for the City of Hutto. The new maps are compiled using up-to-date technology and data which yields a better assessment of where flooding is most likely to occur and more accurately predict floodplain boundaries.
Williamson County has prepared a simple online mapping tool that compares the current effective floodplain limits to the proposed new floodplain limits.

Flood Insurance Rate Maps
On January 30, 2017, FEMA posted digital copies of preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM), Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report materials, and supporting data on their Map Service Center website.
Digital FEMA Maps
Digital versions and images of flood maps are now available for viewing and printing from the online FEMA Flood Map Store. This online store provides paper, scanned images on CD-ROM, and downloads of maps. 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.
Hutto citizens who have a question about their property, should contact the Hutto floodplain coordinator at 512-759-4023.
