From the city of San Marcos
The city’s engineering department will hold a public meeting to present the results of a study evaluating the flood risk in San Marcos on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Meeting Room 3 of the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins.
City Engineers, along with Espey Consultants, Inc., will present the results of a detailed flood analysis of areas along the Blanco River, Willow Springs Creek, Purgatory Creek, Cottonwood Creek, Bypass Creek, Sessom Creek (tributary of the San Marcos River), and the Schulle Canyon tributary of Sink Creek.
Flood mitigation alternatives such as drainage channel improvements, maintenance opportunities, pond layouts and road crossing improvements will be discussed.
Interested citizens and area property owners are invited and encouraged to attend.
The Flood Protection Planning project is partially funded with the assistance of a grant from the Texas Water Development Board. Other participants in the project include Hays County, the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority and the Edwards Aquifer Authority.
For more information on the project, please call the Department of Environment and Engineering at 512-393-8130.
