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.
