Freese and Nichols Presents TWDB Funding Workshops
In an effort to engage people in their own backyards, Freese and Nichols is holding workshops about funding projects with a focus on stormwater and flood mitigation.
Collaborating with the Texas Colorado River Floodplain Coalition and Texas Water Development Board, Freese and Nichols is sponsoring and presenting TWDB funding workshops titled “Digging Deeper into the Clean Water State Revolving Fund” in each of the coalition’s regions.
By partnering with the coalition, FNI can tap into the membership organization, engage with members where they are and reach many who would not normally be able to travel and attend elsewhere.
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 20, Buchanan Dam, TX
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 22, Austin, TX
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 26, San Saba, TX
The TCRFC is a partnership of 48 cities and 16 counties in the Colorado River basin and surrounding areas seeking better ways to reduce and mitigate flood damage. It was formed in response to a combination of rapid growth, a greatly expanded number of homes and businesses in the floodplain, and devastating floods that have reoccurred in the basin.
The first workshop was held on June 28 at the Caney Creek Church in Wharton and attended by 16 TCRFC Region 1 Coalition members representing Cities of Flatonia, El Campo, Wharton, East Bernard and Columbus; and Colorado, Jackson, Matagorda and Wharton counties. Presenters included FNI’s Jay Scanlon, TCRFC Executive Director Mickey Reynolds and TWDB’s Mark Evans and Tom Entsminger.
