Texas Colorado River Floodplain Coalition Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2011-2016

The Texas Colorado River Floodplain Coalition Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2011-2016 is an excellent plan and presentation describing how large groups of entities can work together to protect people from injury, illness, and death and protect property from damage and destruction. It includes: the planning process; a regional profile covering population, demographics, land use, the major lakes and dams, the economy and industry; an overview of hazards and the level of risk to a large number of areas and communities within the overall project based on past experience and new projections; a discussion of a large number of potential hazards, the hazard profile, and how to use Best Practices to manage it; a discussion of the potential hazards due to floods, hurricanes, tropical storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, winter storms, drought, extreme heat, wild fires, dam failure, hazardous materials, pipeline failure, and terrorism; discussion of the means and capability of dealing with the disaster; a mitigation strategy for each of the regions including a variety of counties within different states; and a discussion of repetitive loss properties and the National Flood Insurance program. This Multi-Jurisdictional Hazardous Mitigation Plan Update demonstrates the validity of working with a large group of partners in trying to help each other mitigate the effects of a variety of disasters and then take needed action when the problems occur.
