Presentation Summary Introduction & Objectives Data Software Methodology Timeline Research & Results Budget Final Deliverables Conclusion
Introduction: Background on project –Two floods in the past 10 years where water levels have surpassed the 500 year floodplain Floodplain management –FEMA definition Objectives for this project were arrived upon through correspondence with the City of San Marcos
ESP’s Objectives ESP’s Objectives: Determine low water crossings Locate potential flood risk areas Designate various emergency shelters Determine evacuation routes from hazardous locations Evaluate mobility of at risk citizens
Scope: This study will cover the City of San Marcos, Texas and the associated Extraterritorial Jurisdiction up to and including the city expansion according to the Master Plan.

Analysis Participation Jason Haycock –Evacuation network analysis –Metadata formation Colleen Grentz –Floodplain and flood line analysis –Determination of low water crossings Robert Broussard –Risk assessment analysis –Determination of emergency shelters
Proposed Research: Couple FEMA data & San Marcos Flood Data, circa 1998 in order to produce map products which will show all: –Potential flood areas in & around San Marcos –Low water crossings in the San Marcos ETJ
Proposed Research (cont.) : Develop evacuation routes which: –Lead evacuees to primary & secondary shelters (balance capacity & locations) –Will detour evacuees safely around low water crossings on their way to shelters
Proposed Research (cont.) : Produce an analysis of Year 2000 Census and San Marcos tax appraisal data to: –Highlight areas where individuals may need help in reaching the shelters Maps: Clear, Easily Understood, Based on Current data, & the Evacuation Maps be Key Contributors to an Efficient and Safe Evacuation under emergency conditions
Deliverables: Multiple copies of CD’s containing: –Project in Your preferred GIS format –All data & maps developed for this project –Metadata for all layers in the project –Written report (2 copies, unless requested otherwise) –Professional, gloss finished poster
Proposed Budget: Data Collection ‘$570 Data Analysis $10,650 Systems Management ‘ $3,000 Equipment $10,756 Software License $1,750 ------------ Total Proposed $26,726
Conclusion Conclusion: Upon completion of this project, ESP aims to discover valuable information that will allow the City of San Marcos, Texas to understand more thoroughly the potential flooding areas, where shelters should be placed in relation and evacuation routes to these safe havens.
