Flood Studies

Flooding is a serious matter and we take it seriously. Designing flood control channels. Flood-proofing existing structures. Identifying and mapping floodplains. Planning and implementing mitigation measures. Developing multi-objective floodplain plans. Whatever your situation calls for.

Our technical expertise covers all the bases, giving you an accurate picture to anticipate and respond to flooding impacts. More than technical solutions, we can help you develop a comprehensive floodplain management program that considers structural and nonstructural strategies. We’ve also helped our clients forge public consensus on challenging floodplain issues.

VEI has performed hundreds of studies of the creeks and rivers throughout the Hill Country and South Texas. VEI is known throughout the Hill Country for our expertise in this area. To date, VEI has submitted over 50 extensive flood studies to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on a majority of the streams and rivers throughout the Hill Country to help residents and businesses reclaim land that is currently inaccurately designated as part of the 100 year flood plain area by FEMA.
