The Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) request has been submitted that will, in part, revise the following flood hazards along the Brazos River. 1. Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) will be established along the Brazos River in the project area. 2. The SFHA and regulatory floodway will widen along the Brazos River in the project area. 3. Water surface elevations (WSEL's) will increase along the project limits Maps and detailed analysis of the revision can be reviewed at waco-texas.com/WTXFlood.
