Southeast Texas Flood Coordination Study

With the continued risk of flooding in Southeast Texas, Lamar University and the University of Texas at Austin are working together to help the region improve its resiliency during large-scale flooding events.

With improved data availability and facilitating communication between the many agencies, community groups, industries, and other stakeholders in the area, we will help Southeast Texas plan for, predict, and respond to floods through:

  • providing a forum for improved communication
  • creating a regional geodatabase
  • developing flood modeling of future storms for mitigation decisions 
  • developing flood mapping
