Join us for lunch on September 11th! Our speakers will be Kevin Shunk and Matt Hollon from the City of Austin's Watershed Protection and Scott and DeeDee Biscoe with Allstate Insurance Group. 


The Watershed Protection Department is in the process of changing our floodplain regulations in light of a new National Weather Service study, called Atlas 14. This study looked at historical rainfall and found that we are more likely to experience large storms and flooding than we previously thought. Austin regulates building in the floodplain to protect Austin residents from flooding and to reduce public expense in the aftermath of a flood. We are proposing to apply the floodplain regulations to more properties to reflect the increased flood risk. We are also proposing a redevelopment exception for people who are trying to make their existing houses safer from flooding.



Kevin Shunk: is a managing engineer with Watershed Protection. He oversees the Watershed Engineering Division, which protects lives and property from the devastating effects of flooding. Flash flooding is Austin’s top weather-related emergency.

Matt Hollon:  is an Environmental Conservation Program Manager. He is in charge of Watershed Protection's Planning Division. The Planning Division helps the department prioritize and integrate our projects, helps usher in new rules and regulations and provide GIS support.


Plus, Scott and DeeDee Biscoe will be speaking about how the flood regulations affect insurance.
