I hereby apply to participate in the ATXFloods Alerts! Advance Notification Service of the City of Austin (‘the City).

I understand that in some circumstances, the City may open or close low water crossings without sending a warning message and/or the City may not provide warning prior to dangerous flooding in areas which I have agreed to be notified.

I agree to notify the City in writing or via e-mail to atxfloodsalerts@austintexas.gov of any changes in telephone number(s).
