This is probably an obvious question, but does it ever flood in Rowlett in the residential areas?

I have never seen any kind of flooding. The only area that gets high water and gets closed sometimes during heavy rains is on Miller road between Centerville and Rowlett Road. I think that creek is called Rowlett creek but not sure...

Any particular neighborhood you are concerned about?

Hi, I am about to buy a house in rowlett. Its on Conestoga dr zip code 75089. Just received call from my lender suggesting i should buy flood insurance. I looked up my address on line in a website and it shows me high flood risk area. Does anyone knows when the last time this area was flooded or heavy rain. Any input will be helpful

That's an odd request from your lender if the house is not in a regular flood plain. The creek Preserve is not close to this street. Is your lender local? Flood insurance is not that high anyway, so if it's a condition on your loan, you would be required to get it.

I have never seen that area get a lot of water even during the high rains. For peace of mind, ask the neighbors in addition to the owner.

Default Flood

You might want to go to the Core of Engineers website and research Rowlett Texas That can how you how often it has happened

Also your insurance agent would be able to tell you because they can plug into the flood insurance required areas

Good luck
