Championing a regional approach to flood risk management

Levees and Fort Bend County

The sustainability of Fort Bend County (FBC) is intertwined with its levees. Over $20 billion in property investment and approximately 150,000 residents are protected by nearly 100 miles of levees. These levees are entirely locally constructed without any Federal funding. Each levee is operated and maintained under the oversight of a Levee Improvement District (LID). Each of the nearly 20 LIDs in FBC is run by its own set of directors. The County, the cities and the LIDs share the common goal of protecting their residents from flooding. The Fort Bend Flood Management Association serves as a forum where all stakeholders can collaborate towards this common regional purpose.
