SEEKING PUBLIC FEEDBACK ON DRAFT CHAPTERS OF ASSESSMENT OF FLOOD MITIGATION NEEDS AND RESPONSE INFORMATION FOR LOWER BRAZOS REGION
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Draft Lists of Flood Management Evaluations (FMEs), Flood Mitigation Projects (FMPs),
and Flood Management Strategies (FMSs) for your community/entity. Community and Public Stakeholders still
have the opportunity to provide feedback and identify additional flood-prone areas not captured in the initial flood risk mapping
by viewing the Web Map on the ‘Flood Risk Map’ tab along the top menu bar of this website.
The Lower Brazos Regional Flood Planning Group (Lower Brazos RFPG) is
seeking public input on the draft chapters of the regional flood plan that describe the assessment and identification of flood mitigation needs and response information
for the Lower Brazos Region. The following information is currently available for public review:
Please submit your review comments by no later than May 26 either through the Lower Brazos RFPG website or during the Public Comment period at the RFPG meeting scheduled on May 26 at 10:00 a.m.
Microsoft Teams link to join the meeting here.
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 May 26 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!
