About

 

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.

Vision

To develop Southeast Texas (SETexas) as a prototype for regional flood mitigation and response, with the potential to expand the model state-wide.

 

Mission

Develop a funded research, agency and industry group which will:
  • Facilitate flood mitigation and sensoring technologies in SETexas
  • Collect data and coordinate with local, state and national stakeholders for stormwater modeling and decision making in SETexas, which is in support of the State Flood Plan
  • Work with SETexas for emergency response and facilitate an enactment exercise
  • Prepare a maintenance plan for a SETexas Flood Coordination Group
