SAN ANTONIO REGIONAL FLOOD PLANNING GROUP
Region 12 Purpose
The purpose of the San Antonio Regional Flood Planning Group (SARFPG), Region 12, is to provide comprehensive regional flood planning and to carry out the related responsibilities placed on regional flood planning groups by state law. Foremost among those responsibilities is the development of a regional flood plan for the planning area. The plan identifies both short and long-term flooding issues and recommends flood management strategies for addressing them. The plan is updated every five years.
The SARFPG is composed of planning group members representing various interest groups. It is guided by the Texas Water Development Board, led by an Executive Committee, governed by by-laws, and supported by the San Antonio River Authority and a team of technical consultants. Planning group meetings are held on a monthly basis.
