Summary

Digital flood-inundation maps were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Bandera County River Authority and Groundwater District and with the Texas Water Development Board for a 23-mile reach of the Medina River extending from Winans Creek to English Crossing, Texas. The flood-inundation maps represent a range of selected water-surface elevations at USGS streamflow-gaging station 08178880 Medina River at Bandera, Texas (hereinafter referred to as the “Bandera station”). Near-real time hydrologic data for estimating areas of inundation near the Bandera station are available from the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) web interface (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/tx/nwis/) and from the National Weather [...]

Purpose

The flood-inundation maps documented by this data release and its companion interpretive report, along with online information regarding the near-real time stage for the Bandera station, and forecast river stages from the NWS AHPS, are intended to provide emergency management personnel and residents with information critical during flood response activities such as evacuations and road closures, as well information for use in post-flood recovery efforts.
