USACE FLOOD CONTROL PROJECT – CENTRAL CITY
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Central City Flood Control Project addresses Fort Worth's flood risks resulting from explosive population growth. The two main components are: the rerouting of a section of the Trinity River north of downtown and modifying a large park on the city's east side to better manage flood events.
The City of Fort Worth's Comprehensive Plan calls for greater density in districts close to downtown, including Panther Island. The district is impacted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood control project; however, no federal money is being used to accomplish the City's sustainable growth goals for the district.
