Fort Worth Stormwater Management
As redevelopment on Fort Worth's near southside continues, the city is examining the area watersheds to determine what flood risks are and to find cost-effective ways to reduce those risks.
The near southside study area extends to Evans Avenue to the east, Allen Avenue to the south, the Fort Worth and Western Railroad (FWWR) to the west and Interstate 30 to the north. View the map »
The plan will determine the frequency and magnitude of flooding in the near southside area and identify regional strategies to mitigate flooding, while considering connectivity with the surrounding area, partnership opportunities, and compatibility with plans by others. In particular, the plan hopes to identify regional stormwater detention areas that reduce the continued damages from flooding while promoting redevelopment.
About the Plan
Create a master plan to reduce the existing flooding problem and make redevelopment in the area more efficient.
