To comply with the National Flood Insurance Program requirements, the city has consulted with FEMA on bringing its floodplain ordinance up to speed with federal and county guidelines. 

The city is also working with Harris County on adopting minimum drainage requirements and detention standards. City staff has been working with county officials on this in order to comply by Dec. 31 or lose FEMA and county funds.
