Data Collection is Underway for Lower Brazos Regional Flood Planning!

The Lower Brazos Regional Flood Planning Group (Lower Brazos RFPG) is seeking input and information pertaining to flooding issues in Region 8. This data collection activity is critical to the development and success of the first-ever Regional Flood Plan for the Lower Brazos Basin.

Input is crucial to better understand local flood risks and mitigation efforts, as well as to develop a Regional Flood Plan that accurately reflects flood-related conditions, efforts, and needs across the entire region.



How to Participate

The Lower Brazos RFPG’s electronic data collection tool is at https://lowerbrazos.halff.com/ . The public is invited to visit the interactive web map on which specific, local flood-prone areas can be identified.

In order to meet the State of Texas’ deadline for this first-ever Regional Flood Plan, all survey responses are needed by August 13, 2021. Information collected from surveys completed after the deadline may be not be included into the initial regional flood plan.



Why Should I Participate?

By providing the Lower Brazos RFPG with input, the Regional Flood Plan will better represent community’s flood risk, local flooding issues/needs, and potential mitigation solutions. As a result, participating entities will be eligible to apply for future state funding to implement proposed flood mitigation projects. The data collection efforts are being coordinated with the ongoing Combined River Basin Study by the Texas General Land Office.

Electronic copies of reports, maps, and computer models can be uploaded to the website listed above. Alternatively, hard copies information can be mailed to the Lower Brazos lead consultant Attn: Sam Hinojosa, Halff Associates, Inc., 100 I-45 N Suite 260, Conroe, TX 77301 .
