SEEKING PUBLIC FEEDBACK ON DRAFT CHAPTERS OF RECOMMENDED FLOOD MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES, EVALUATIONS AND
MITIGATION PROJECTS AND IMPACTS OF REGIONAL FLOOD PLAN FOR LOWER BRAZOS BASIN
The Lower Brazos Regional Flood Planning Group (Lower Brazos RFPG) is getting close to completing the final draft of the Lower Brazos Regional
Flood Plan! For the next step of this project, the Lower Brazos RFPG is
seeking public input on the draft chapters of the regional flood plan that
describe the recommended Flood Management Strategies (FMSs), flood management evaluations (FMEs) and flood mitigation projects
(FMPs), as well as the impacts of the regional flood plan
for the basin. The following draft information is currently available for public review:
Please submit your review comments by no later than June 23 either through the Lower Brazos RFPG website or during the Public Comment
period at the RFPG meeting scheduled on June 23 at 10:00 a.m.
Microsoft Teams link to join the meeting here.
Community and Public Stakeholders still have the
opportunity to provide feedback and identify additional flood-prone areas not captured in the initial flood risk
by viewing the Web Map on the ‘Flood Risk Map’ tab along the top menu bar of this website.
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY REVIEW COMMENTS?
Review comments can be submitted electronically by clicking on the ‘Contact Us’ tab along the top menu bar of this website and filling out the
information under ‘Public Comments’ or by emailing LBFlood@brazos.org. Comments can also be provided during the Public Comment period at
the RFPG meeting on June 23 at 10:00 a.m.
Microsoft Teams link to join the meeting here;
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 document currently available on the Lower Brazos website for public review, please contact Pamela
Hannemann with the Brazos River Authority at (254) 761-3135 or LBFlood@brazos.org.
Thank you for your participation in this important new regional flood planning effort!
