Public Meeting on Fort Worth’s Floodplain Management Plan Featured

Katie Hogan

Fort Worth residents attended a public meeting Monday June 1, covering the City’s Floodplain Management Plan. The meeting, covered by WFAA News, came after May topped the record books as Texas’ wettest month ever.

Residents discussed needs for improved drainage in areas that flooded during last month’s rain. The public meeting was one of the first steps for the public planning program, led by the City of Fort Worth’s Stormwater Management Division. 

This plan will identify and develop a prioritized action plan for reducing flood risks. It will also reduce some flood insurance costs for residents and businesses by improving Fort Worth’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) score.

Scott Hubley, Katie Hogan, Luke Andreasen, and Seth Davis of our North Texas Stormwater Group are helping the City to prepare the plan. Visit the project website to learn more.
