Texas Water Development Board

In 2019, the 86th Legislature passed Senate Bill 8 which directs the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to create the State’s first statewide Flood Plan. The TWDB has divided the Texas into 15 regions based on our river basins. The initial regional flood planning groups were formed on October 1, 2020 with the goal of the first regional flood plans being submitted in January 2023. Once complete, the first state flood plan will be published September 1, 2024. The Fort Bend County Levee Systems are included in Region 8 (Lower Brazos).
