Flood Planning

Flooding, in its myriad forms, is part of the natural cycle of a river system.  This natural process, however, is heavily influenced by human activities like dams, urbanization, and agricultural practices.  It is important to understand what causes flooding to reduce the risk to health, homes, communities, businesses, and livelihoods.  The Trinity River Authority is a partner in this effort, working with multiple agencies to help protect the citizens of the Trinity basin.
