TFMA NEWS BRIEF - UPDATE

CEDAR PARK, TX  September 7, 2017

The Texas Floodplain Management Association (TFMA) consists of local officials, floodplain administrators, emergency managers, planners, and engineers. Our 2,500 members are grieving the loss of life and property brought by Hurricane Harvey, and we remember all those affected in our thoughts and prayers. Many of our members are directly involved in the recovery effort and many others are assisting peers at this time.

Members of the Association understand the complex causes of flooding in our communities. TFMA’s hope is that in the effort to rebuild our lives and communities we will not simply build everything back as it was before, but consider the continuing and increasing flood risk many Texans face. We must work to help Texas become more flood resilient not only by adhering to local floodplain development standards but also by considering higher standards. Floods over the past few years have shown that the minimum standards most of our communities adopt and enforce are not enough to prevent the loss of life and property damages. If we fail to work together toward flood resiliency in Texas, the impacts of future floods will only increase as Texas doubles in population over the next 50 years. Our economic vitality, our communities, and our citizens cannot continue to absorb these kinds of losses.

TFMA is asking you to support your community in the rebuilding process. Contact your local elected officials along with your local floodplain manager to find out more about your flood risk and let them know you support rebuilding Texas to a Higher Standard so that your community can be a safer place to live, work and raise a family. Working together we can reduce our risks and increase our resiliency.

Let’s protect our future, “Flood Proof Texas”.
