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 a approach to flood protection:

Regulating development to prevent future problems.
Providing advice on protecting homes and businesses.
Creating and maintaining floodplain maps and models.
Building detention ponds, flood walls, storm drain systems and other projects. Learn more about some of our larger projects on our project page.
