Stormwater Planning

The Stormwater Planning Section is responsible for analyzing data to identify drainage infrastructure needs in the city. The Section leads engineering studies to review alternative infrastructure improvements and develops the appropriate project recommendations. Stormwater Planning works closely with partner agencies and City Departments including Harris County Flood Control District, Houston Parks & Recreation Department, Metro, TXDOT and other entities for a unified and coordinated project development throughout the City. The Stormwater Planning Section is leading the development of the City’s first Stormwater Master Plan who constitutes a 2D model of the City’s drainage infrastructure that will subsequently illustrate areas of deficiencies that need to be addressed through future rehabilitation and reconstruction projects.
