Montgomery County Comprehensive Flood Management Plan Community Forum

October 20, 2022 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

The Comprehensive Flood Management Plan will serve as a guide for developing information and tools to manage flood risk in Montgomery County. The County has experienced an increase in flooding events with impacts to public and private property. While the reasons for this increase are varied, chief among them are increases to impervious surface due to development and increases in high-intensity rainfall events. The impacts of both are expected to increase due to continued growth and climate change.
