Georgetown, Texas Water Development Board to host open house July 26 on flood-protection planning

Officials with the city of Georgetown and the Texas Water Development Board will host an open house July 26 to get public comments on flooding and flood-prone areas in Georgetown.

The event begins at 6 p.m. at the Georgetown Municipal Complex, 300-1 Industrial Ave., Georgetown, according to a news release from the city.

Officials are undertaking a regional flood-protection planning study to identify areas that regularly see flooding and develop mitigation strategies, including drainage maintenance and future drainage-related public works projects.

No formal presentations are planned during the July 26 meeting, according to the city. However, attendees will be able to see results of a flood plain mapping project that shows where flood-prone areas are located.

Those unable to attend the meeting can contact Georgetown Systems Engineering Director Wesley Wright by email at [email protected] or by phone at 512-931-7672 to report on areas where flooding occurs, according to the city.
