Krista Melnar Quoted in ENR on Texas Flood Planning

An ENR Texas & Louisiana report about Texas’ flood control plan taps the expertise of Krista Bethune Melnar, our Stormwater Practice Leader.

The article, “Texas Makes Sweeping Overhaul of State Flood Control Plan,” discusses the state’s pioneering work to reduce flood risk through a planning process similar to the water planning process that has helped prepare for future water needs through regional and statewide coordination.

Freese and Nichols is serving as a prime or subtechnical consultant on 12 of the 15 planning regions established by the Texas Water Development Board, which is overseeing the flood planning process.

Krista also is serving on the Flood Technical Advisory Group, which is providing input, advice and feedback to TWDB related to flood planning, data collection, mapping and modeling.
