Flood damage affects more than property—it impacts the entire community. In the five years since Hurricane Harvey, WFDD has invested almost $8 million in rebuilding infrastructure and restoring drainage. Working together with community stakeholders, the District has announced Project Barker, a flood risk reduction and community park project within Barker Reservoir. Even though WFDD engages is engaging in ongoing mitigation and recovery projects, it is critical homeowners to do their part to protect their homes by:
- purchasing or renewing flood insurance annually
- preparing homes and property for hurricane season
- signing up for flood alerts to stay informed year round
- supporting community efforts like Project Barker that reduce flood risk
Don’t wait to protect what you’ve built; flood insurance can take up to 30 days to go into effect. Visit FloodSmart.gov or call 800-427-4661 to learn more about flood insurance.
