Living with Water® Houston

A collaborative process catalyzes the City’s response to flood threats in a way that delivers value and quality of life for all residents.

Living With Water® Houston builds on the many local efforts underway to reduce flood risk and provides a framework and illustrative vision for aligning future actions.

The Resilient Houston strategy and Living With Water® approach recognizes that actions to reduce risk and increase resilience can be taken at multiple interconnected scales—from the home, to the block, neighborhood, bayou, city, and region.

Living With Water® Houston aims to develop place-specific strategies to reduce flood risk and equip Houstonians for the next storm.
