THE WOODLANDS, TX - The San Jacinto Regional Watershed Master Drainage Plan (SJMDP), led by the Harris County Flood Control District, along with local partners Montgomery County, the City of Houston, and the San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA), will host a virtual public meeting in August 2020. The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to provide information about study progress and encourage public participation and input in the SJMDP.

The SJMDP study effort began in April 2019 to identify future flood mitigation projects that can be implemented in the near- and long-term to reduce flood risks to people and property throughout the San Jacinto River regional watershed. The SJMDP study area covers nearly 3,000 square miles located in seven different counties and includes approximately 535 miles of stream.

The SJMDP is jointly funded with 75 percent from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Planning Program and 25 percent from the four local partners. Overall, the SJMDP aims to provide an up-to-date technical basis to identify flooding vulnerabilities for existing infrastructure and impacts from future growth to improve flood resiliency within the watershed. The SJMDP is scheduled for completion in fall 2020.

Community engagement is an important component of the Bond Program, and we invite your participation as the program is implemented. The virtual community engagement meeting will be held on:
