Water Knows No Boundaries
The Bexar County Flood Control Program is a 10-year, $500 Million capital improvement program that was established by the Bexar County Commissioners Court in 2007. The program is designed to address flooding from a regional perspective, rather than by political or jurisdictional boundaries, and is the result of a partnership between Bexar County, the San Antonio River Authority, the City of San Antonio and 20 suburban cities, known as the Bexar Regional Watershed Management.
Bexar County is investing $500 million over 10 years to build approximately 50 flood control projects across our community. View the interactive map to learn more about projects near you.

The scope of this overall project includes the analysis of Leon Creek starting at Loop 410, and following Leon Creek upstream to Huebner Creek just downstream of Bandera Road. This study is to determine the possible channel improvements and the alternatives to reduce structural flooding both in Leon Valley and the City of San Antonio. Segment II will be from just south of Timberhill Drive upstream to the city limit line between Leon Valley and San Antonio. Channel improvements proposed for this segment include channel widening and realignment in order to reduce the floodplain limits in surrounding residential areas.
