Active Engineering Projects

Engineering projects addressing clean, safe and enjoyable waterways. These project in particular have a flood management facet. 

The SARA Floodplain Viewer engages users in an interactive floodplain map, displaying the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL) data.

Through more accurate flood maps, risk assessment tools, and outreach support, FEMA's Risk Mapping Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) strengthens local ability to make informed decisions about reducing flood risk. Risk MAP uses a watershed-based study approach which improves engineering credibility and allows for the understanding of risks in a more comprehensive way. 

The San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) is collaborating with the City of San Antonio for the 2017-2022 Bond project Panther Springs Creek Restoration. The creek restoration efforts will focus on improving the water and sediment conveyance of the existing natural channel.
