Watershed Engineering’s mission is to protect lives and property from the devastating effects of flooding. Flash flooding is Austin’s top weather-related emergency. Floods in Austin continue to take lives and can cause millions of dollars in damage.
We take a broad approach to flood protection:
We monitor storms and creeks, barricade flooded roads and assist emergency responders.
We regulate development to prevent future problems.
We provideadvice on protecting homes and businesses.
We create and maintain floodplain maps and models.
We build detention ponds, flood walls, storm drain systems and other projects. Learn more about some of our larger projects on our project page.
Inspection and Maintenance
We inspect dams and creek crossings and make repairs as needed.
