A faster, fairer, smarter plan to protect Harris County from flooding
 
 

Harris County is one of the most dynamic counties in the country -- a region of an estimated 4.6 million people that has grown twice as fast as the rest of the country in the last two decades.

But Hurricane Harvey and other major flooding events have harmed our region, and we recognize the risk of such events occurring with increasing frequency in the future.

We are taking this challenge head-on by investing billions into flood control, housing, and emergency preparedness. Through this website, we will share our progress, receive feedback from the community, and build a stronger and more resilient Harris County.

 
Harris County is hard at work to rebuild and strengthen
our community against the threat of flooding. 
Current efforts fall under three main categories:
Emergency Preparedness
Housing
Flood Control
