The Lower Brazos Flood Planning Region (Region 8) represents 43 counties and 191 communities located at least partially
within the basin. Twelve voting members, appointed by the TWDB Executive Director, serve on the Lower Brazos Flood
Planning Group and represent the following interest categories: Agriculture, Counties, Electric Generating Utilities,
Flood Districts, Industries, Municipalities, General Public, River Authorities, Small Businesses, Water Districts and
Water Utilities. The primary role of the Lower Brazos Flood Planning Group is to develop a regional flood plan for the
Region 8 Lower Brazos Flood Planning Region that identifies flood risks, establishes flood mitigation and floodplain
management goals, and recommends evaluations, strategies, and projects to reduce flood risks.
Similar to Texas’ state water supply planning process, the State Flood Plan will be based on regional flood plans
developed by local stakeholders representing diverse interests. The Lower Brazos Regional Flood Plan is due to the
TWDB by January 10, 2023 and will be incorporated into the overall State Flood Plan.
