Services: Floodplain Determination & Mapping

When you need to get a handle on the “bigger picture,” floodplain determination mapping can provide you with the information you need. This kind of watershed analysis can create accurate floodplain models with a broad scope that encompasses entire cities or counties. The models we create are based off of the real world, and can be invaluable for municipal and government entities in the Central Texas region.

Topographic maps will help to determine elevations so that the flow of water can be established. Other analysis will define the varieties of terrain, as water will flow differently depending on ground makeup and cover.

Floodplain mapping is an essential part of city and municipal planning, and no comprehensive plan can be developed without first considering the topographical nature of a given area.

As a full service environmental engineering company, we are fully capable of handling all of your floodplain mapping needs. As a result of our extensive regional experience, we have a unique perspective on the Central Texas area that is based on real-world experience and an overall understanding of this place we call home. We are eager to put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

At Willis Environmental Engineering Inc., we work directly with the private sector and municipal/government entities to design systems and create solutions to the most complex problems. By remaining steadfast to our original commitment to excellence when we first opened our doors in 1971, we’ve been a key player in the development and growth of West and Central Texas.

Floodplain Mapping – Getting a Better Understanding

There are a number of elements that go into accurate floodplain determination mapping, and a variety of reasons for having an analysis done. At Willis Engineering Inc., we offer the following services relative to Floodplain mapping:

•  GIS Mapping
•  River Analysis and Mapping
•  Hydraulic Computer Modeling
•  1D and 2D Computer Modeling
•  Watershed and Waterway Analysis

GIS is a computer system that captures and stores geographical data for manipulation and management. With this technology, information gathered from floodplain mapping can be utilized in many useful ways, simplifying the planning and development processes.

This technology has significantly matured during the last four decades we’ve been in business, and while GIS has a variety of applications, one could argue it has become most valuable for floodplain mapping.
