How is the project funded?
The District’s focus is Regional Flood Risk Mitigation throughout the Brushy Creek watershed. The Dam 101 project is a partnership with the City of Round Rock who initially led the project development and is continuing to participate through monetary and in-kind services contributions. Both the District’s and the County flood studies identified the area in the Lake Creek watershed as the largest damage center within both territories. The District has several ongoing projects across the District. You can access a current CIP status report on all our projects here.
In November 2020, the voters approved an $85 million bond program to fund flood safety projects throughout the Upper Brushy Creek watershed.
