During the 86th Legislature, Senate Bill 500 was passed which allocated funds from the floodplain management account in the Texas Infrastructure Resiliency Fund to the TWDB to develop and update flood risk maps in the state using current data and technology standards. Additionally, these funds will be used to support the development of a state flood plan and to provide up to date flood hazard information for the state.
Flood Science efforts at TWDB include developing improved flood modeling and mapping statewide as well as performing flood research activities which support all statewide flood initiatives.
