SBCA Happy Hour: Watershed Protection Bond Purchases And Flood Risk
January 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
From the Save Barton Creek Association –
Join us at our monthly happy hour to learn about the federal rainfall study called Atlas 14 and its implications related to flood risk in Austin. In response to these risks, the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department proposes amendments to the Land Development Code. Additionally, learn about the Water Quality Protection Lands program and the significance of purchasing lands for protection of future water supplies, flood risk reduction, and more.
Our speakers will be David Johns, a geologist working for the City of Austin since 1989, and Kevin Shunk, the floodplain administrator for the City of Austin.
