SEEKING PUBLIC FEEDBACK ON DRAFT LIST OF POTENTIAL FLOOD MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES AND MITIGATION PROJECTS
Thank you to all who submitted review comments last month on the proposed process for identifying flood management
strategies and mitigation projects for the Lower Brazos Regional Flood Plan. For the next step of this project, the
Lower Brazos Regional Flood Planning Group (Lower Brazos RFPG) is seeking public input on the draft summary of
potential flood management strategies and mitigation projects being considered for the Regional Flood Plan.
Your feedback is critical to the successful development of the first-ever Regional Flood Plan
for the Lower Brazos River Basin, which ultimately will be incorporated into the State Flood Plan for Texas.
Lower Brazos RFPG needs to receive your input
to ensure the draft list of flood management evaluations (FMEs), flood management strategies (FMSs) and flood
mitigation projects (FMPs) accurately represents the entire region; this summary/technical memorandum will be
finalized and submitted to the TWDB in early January 2022. The following draft documents are currently available
for public review:
Please submit your review comments by no later than December 14 either through the Lower Brazos RFPG website or
during the Public Comment period at the RFPG meeting scheduled on December 14 at 10:00 a.m.
Click here to join the Microsoft Teams meeting.
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY REVIEW COMMENTS?
Review comments can be submitted electronically by clicking on the ‘Public Comments’ tab along the top menu bar of this website and filling out the information or by emailing
Comments can also be provided during the Public Comment period at the RFPG meeting on December 14 at 10:00 a.m.
Click here to join the Microsoft Teams meeting;
each person signed up in advance is allotted three minutes to speak.
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
By providing the Lower Brazos RFPG with your input, the Regional Flood Plan will better represent your
community’s flood risk, local flooding issues/needs, and potential mitigation solutions. The information
collected during this ongoing effort is being coordinated with the Combined River Basin Study, currently
conducted by the Texas General Land Office.
Proposed flood mitigation projects must be included in the Regional and State Flood
Plans in order for an Entity to be eligible for State financial assistance programs.
If you have any questions about the draft documents currently available on the Lower Brazos website for public
review, please contact Pamela Hannemann with the Brazos River Authority at (254) 761-3135 or
Thank you for your participation in this important new regional flood planning effort!
