Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP)

About

About

The San Antonio River Authority (SARA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have developed a successful partnership towards the common goal of reducing flood risk.  As a Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP), SARA works with local communities to implement FEMA programs and to incorporate local knowledge and data into flood hazard mapping and mitigation planning.  SARA has been a CTP with FEMA Region VI since 2003, during the “Map Modernization” program which converted paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps to Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps.  During the “Map Modernization” program SARA invested $14 million to comprehensively map over 1,700 stream miles in Bexar County using up-to-date topography, land use, impervious cover and rain fall data to update Bexar County’s decades old flood maps. Currently, SARA acts as a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) Review Partner and manages Risk MAP projects for the watersheds in the San Antonio River Basin.
