Upper Brushy Creek WCID is asking for input about Hazards associated with Flooding and the Flood Control Structures
The Upper Brushy Creek Water Control and Improvement District (District), in cooperation with the Texas Water Development Board, Williamson County, and the cities of Leander, Cedar Park, Austin, Round Rock, and Hutto are asking the public to help identify natural hazards (floods, drought, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, etc.) that affect their community the most.
The Upper Brushy Creek Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) Draft is being developed. The plan identifies local policies and actions for reducing risk and future losses from natural hazards, most specifically related to District infrastructure.
The public is invited to review the Draft plan, and review risk assessment and mitigation strategies incorporated into the plan. It is vital to have public input into the updating of hazards, mitigation goals, strategies, and actions for the plan.
