MISSION: Watershed Protection protects lives, property and the environment of our community by reducing the impact of flood, erosion and water pollution.
City of Austin Watershed Protection Department has a multi-tiered approach including a wide variety of ongoing programs such as Grow Green and the Lady Bird Lake Cleanup Crew; construction projects such as stormwater ponds and streambank restorations; and regulations to help prevent future problems.
Austin lies in the heart of Flash Flood Alley and is particularly vulnerable to flooding due to our torrential downpours and rocky landscape. It is critical that residents and visitors be alert to the dangers of flooding both at home and on the road.
Rushing water has tremendous power. Taking the following steps during a storm can help you stay safe:
Be alert to your surroundings.
Monitor local media.
Stay away from creeks, trails, culverts, ponds and other drainage infrastructure.
If water starts to rise, seek higher ground. This may mean getting on your roof.
Check ATXFloods.com for information on flooded roadways.
The Flood Early Warning System monitors rainfall, water levels and low water crossings in Austin 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. During a flood, we work closely with emergency managers for the most effective and timely community response.
