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 project includes the construction of a Regional Storm Water Facility (RSWF) at the old Northwest Shopping Center to alleviate the flooding that occurs at the corner of Gardina Street and Fredericksburg Road as well as downstream along Kampmann Blvd to the Woodlawn Lake area. The City of San Antonio has constructed the Laddie Place I and Laddie Place II Detention Ponds but additional relief is required. The project will also include a recreational area for public use and enjoyment.
