Our Mission

Barker Flood Prevention is a non-partisan, volunteer group advocating flood management solutions for the Barker Reservoir watershed by coordinating with public agencies and elected officials, educating the community about flood management projects and policies, and encouraging timely implementation of effective projects.

Our action items are:

  1. Increase conveyance within the Barker Reservoir watershed and surrounding area through de-silting and channel realignment projects
  2. Increase capacity in Barker Reservoir through selective or mass excavation
  3. Increase conveyance out of Barker Reservoir by building a flood tunnel or other means
  4. Manage the Cypress Creek overflow by building a third reservoir or other means
