County seeks public input for Flood Management Plan


Coryell County wants to hear from the public about how recent flooding has impacted their homes, families, and communities.

The county and Natural Resources Solutions (NRS), a consulting firm working with the county to create a Flood Management Plan, ask residents to complete a survey that will give them a better understanding on how to mitigate future flooding.

“It will help inform the steps the county will take to improve infrastructure to better handle future flood events,” NRS President Steve Manning said.

The survey is comprised of questions that seek to understand the effects of flooding in the county, specifically flooding on roadways and low water crossings.

Participants can access the survey through the following link:

The survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes. Participation in the survey is voluntary, and responses are anonymous and confidential. It provides the option to enter an email for those who wish to receive additional communications about the planning process.

The deadline to participate in the survey is Saturday, July 20. Paper copies are also available at various venues, including county offices.
