City of Lubbock Flood Rating Improves

National Flood Insurance Program
National Flood Insurance Program

The Hub City has received a new flood rating score.

The City of Lubbock was recently rated as a Class Seven City under the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System.

That rating means a 15 percent discount on flood insurance for homeowners required to carry flood insurance on structures in flood hazard areas.

The discount became effective on May 1st of this year.

The National Flood Insurance Program is managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and NFIP CRS is a voluntary incentive program that encourages community floodplain management activities that help citizens prevent or reduce flood losses.

Participating cities are ranked in classes one through nine, based on points received for 18 activities.

The City of Lubbock’s Stormwater Department achieved the Class Seven rating by creating higher design standards for new buildings, improving stormwater management, providing easier access to maps, and better monitoring of playa lakes.
