Welcome to the Region 8 – Lower Brazos Regional Flood Planning Group

Flood planning to safeguard Texas communities has begun.

Community and public stakeholders are encouraged to become involved.

In 2019, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 8 directing the creation of the first-ever State Flood Plan for Texas — to be prepared by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) and to follow a similar region-driven “bottom-up” approach that’s been used for water supply planning in Texas for the past 20 years.

Fifteen flood planning regions have been established — based on river basins. The first-ever Texas Flood Plan will be delivered from Regional Flood Planning Groups to the TWDB by January 10, 2023.

The overarching goal of regional flood planning, and the comprehensive state flood plan that will result from the plans created by these regions, is to protect against loss of life and property from flooding.
