Williamson County is hosting two public meetings for its Atlas 14 Floodplain Mapping Study. The public meetings will be held at two separate locations on different dates to make it more accessible for county residents to attend one of the meetings.

The county has suffered from severe flooding numerous times in the past. These events have reinforced the importance of knowing where flood risks are located and where mitigation measures are needed. The Atlas 14 Floodplain Mapping Study is being funded via the Texas Water Development Board and will update rainfall data throughout the county, map streams and waterways, and identify where flood risks are located.

At the public meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the study, speak with team members and share anecdotal information about flooding on their property. Public meeting materials will also be available online starting March 29.
