About the Flood Recovery Planning Study

The Jersey Village Long-term Flood Recovery Plan is an accelerated flood damage reduction study led by Dannenbaum Engineering Corporation to address repetitive flooding in the City and the surrounding area. In September 2016, the City contracted Dannenbaum Engineering Corporation to rapidly deliver the Jersey Village Long‑term Flood Recovery Plan by summer 2017.

The goal of the Jersey Village Long‑term Flood Recovery Planning Study is to develop a flood damage reduction plan that balances social acceptability with economic, hydraulic, and environmental feasibility. The plan will identify both short‑term and long‑term flood damage reduction projects that can be designed and implemented as funding allows.

The planning process will be delivered in three phases, and the community will be invited to attend a public meeting during each study phase:

  • Phase 1: Data Collection and Preliminary Assessment
  • Phase 2: Technical Analysis and Development of Alternatives
  • Phase 3: Preferred Alternative Selection and Finalization

 

The Long‑term Flood Recovery Plan study team has concluded Phase 1 (Data Collection) of the City of Jersey Village Long‑term Flood Recovery Plan. Phase 1 included a public scoping meeting on October 18, 2016, data collection from public agencies, a topographic survey of homes, and a survey mailed to 2,437 properties in Jersey Village requesting input on flooding observed by local residents. Now, as the study team concludes the major technical study that defines Phase 2 (Technical Analysis and Alternatives Development), the public’s continued participation is encouraged. Phase 2 of the plan includes a Rapid Assessment structural inventory of homes in the floodplain, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, and structural and non‑structural alternatives development and analysis, as well as economic, environmental, and social assessments. During Phase 3, the Long‑term Flood Recovery Plan study team will use findings and public input from Phase 2 to recommend a hydraulically, economically, environmentally, and socially feasible Long‑term Flood Recovery Plan for the City of Jersey Village. Phase 3 is currently scheduled to conclude in Summer 2017 with a public meeting presenting the recommended alternatives, financing plan, and environmental summary report that comprise the City of Jersey Village Long‑term Flood Recovery Plan.
