As members of the Texas Floodplain Management Association (TFMA), FBCLID 2 would like to remind all residents that May 23-27 is Texas Flood Awareness Week. With Hurricane Season just around the corner, FBCLID 2 encourages all residents to bookmark the Emergency Operations website: https://www.fbclid2.com/emergency.
A variety of information is automatically updated to increase flood awareness during emergencies and help inform decision-making for residents. The FBCLID 2 Emergency Operations website now includes a link to the City of Sugar Land’s award-winning Integrated Storm Water Management Model (ISWMM). The City of Sugar Land developed ISWMM to assist in forecasting ponding in the City. ISWMM utilizes 28 rain/stream gages across the City to collect real-time rainfall data and stream data to predict street ponding depths.
