FEMA and NCTCOG

Cooperating Technical PartnersProgram

In the fall of 2004, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) officially launched a Cooperating Technical Partnership (CTP) Agreement. Since the early 1990ís NCTCOG and FEMA Region VI staff have cooperated in addressing questions from local governments. This agreement built upon the years of informal cooperation and interaction between our two organizations centered on effective floodplain management, education and outreach.

FEMA and NCTCOG are working through the CTP Program to address our communities' watershed concerns. The partnership and ongoing cooperation promise to be just as important for future watershed activities in surrounding North Central Texas counties.

Information about completed projects and those that are still ongoing can be found below.

Flood Map Modernization

As a first priority of the partnership, NCTCOG and FEMA completed the Flood Map Modernization initiative in 2000. This important effort recognized the need for the update of flood insurance studies and flood insurance map panels. Equally important was the development of digital flood hazard mapping.

Discovery Efforts

In November of 2012, NCTCOG's ongoing efforts resulted in a new opportunity to continue a partnership with FEMA. As part of this continuing partnership NCTCOG led Risk MAP Discovery Efforts in the Upper Trinity basin. The Risk MAP (Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning) program seeks to increases public awareness and leads to action that reduces risk to life and property. Risk MAP builds on flood hazard data and maps produced during the Flood Map Modernization (Map Mod) program.

Village Creek Risk Identification Project

In 2013 and 2014, NCTCOG continued this partnership through a Flood Risk Identification Project on portions of the Village Creek watershed. This project was prioritized by the Discovery efforts from years prior. This project provided updated data after completing a detailed study of the scoped portions of the watershed, and provided the community partners with non-regulatory products to help promote higher standards throughout our region.

Bear Creek Risk Identification Project

In 2014, FEMA awarded NCTCOG a grant to complete a Flood Risk Identification Project on portions of the Bear Creek watershed in the cities of Colleyville and Southlake. This project will involve technical production of updated floodplain engineering, and will be completed in early 2016.

Lynchburg Creek Risk Identification Project

In 2015, FEMA awarded NCTCOG a grant to complete a Flood Risk Identification Project on portions of the Lynchburg Creek watershed in the cities of Corinth and Shady Shores. This project will involve technical production of updated floodplain engineering, and will be completed in early 2017.

West Irving Risk Identification Project

In 2015, FEMA awarded NCTCOG a grant to complete a Flood Risk Identification Project on portions of the West Irving Creek watershed in the city of Irving. This project will involve technical production of updated floodplain engineering, and will be completed in early 2017.
