DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — The Denison City Council is moving forward with development of a storm water master plan. 

"It will identify areas that need storm water infrastructure. It will inventory our existing storm water infrastructure," said Franchon Stearns, the city's capital improvement project manager. "It will be something that in the future we will use to mitigate and plan for future projects that will prevent flooding."

The city doesn't currently have a plan like this in place. Stearns said the city is currently operating on a case-by-case basis.

Dension will hire engineers to develop the plan for $254,000. Stearns said this data will become increasingly crucial as the city grows.
