Solicitation for regional flood planning group members

Flooding has always been a constant threat in Texas. It impacts people and property every year. But now the state is taking action. For the first time ever, Texas is launching a statewide, comprehensive effort to fight flood that integrates mapping, planning, and mitigation…

These regional flood planning groups will be made up of at least 12 members from a variety of interest groups—folks who have expertise and experience in floodplain management. These interest groups represent everything from small businesses to agricultural interests, municipalities to industries, and everything in between. Each of the 15 regional flood planning groups will be evaluating flood risks in their area and then identifying ways to mitigate that risk. That could include anything from drainage systems to levies, to detention basins, et cetera.
