The sustainability of Fort Bend County, Texas is intertwined with its levees. Nearly 100 miles of levees, entirely locally constructed and operated, protect close to 150,000 residents and $15 Billion in residential, commercial, local, state, and federal property investments. Our levee districts work hard to maintain and operate reliable levee systems.

Fort Bend Flood Management Association (FBFMA) is a Section 501(c)(6) non-profit corporation organized in 2009 under the laws of the State of Texas.

Our Purpose:

The purpose of the FBFMA is to bring together local levee owners, cities, and county agencies responsible for providing flood protection in order to gather information from a variety of sources and disseminate this information to its members. To accomplish this purpose, the FBFMA:

FBFMA provides a means for and promotes its members to attend a variety of conferences, both locally and nationally sponsored, where similar local, state, federal and international organizations share information regarding all aspects of flood control and stormwater management design, implementation and administration.

Member Benefits

FBFMA members work in a coordinated effort to gather information for the collective voice of Fort Bend County’s flood risk management districts. This is accomplished through the efforts of individual members attending national, regional, and local conferences, engaging professional lobbyists and advocates to aid in our efforts, and coordinating with other similar groups from around the nation to keep abreast of and have input in ongoing legislative and rule-making activities which might affect our levee and flood protection systems. Together we can present our concerns and opinions to those federal, state, and local agencies that directly affect our levee systems and the vibrant community that is Fort Bend County. FBFMA is a member of several like-minded organizations around the nation which affords our FBFMA members attendance to conferences at reduced costs and gives access to information otherwise unavailable to individuals.

Membership in the FBFMA by all districts adds to our strength in the eyes of the federal and state agencies, lends more hands to the task of attending the nationwide conferences, and helps lower the costs to the individual member districts.
