San Antonio Leaders Mull Strategies to Avoid Flood Disaster

This September, the $500 million Bexar County Flood Control Plan will come to a close. The 10-year capital improvements program was established in 2007 by Bexar County Commissioners in response to a 100-year flood that claimed nine lives in 2002 and earned San Antonio and New Braunfels the nickname “Flash Flood Alley.” The plan’s expiration comes at a time when San Antonio is poised for unprecedented growth that threatens to aggravate flooding conditions as increasing urban density results in more water runoff.
