From 2021 to 2022, the Texas A&M Institute for a Disaster Resilient Texas conducted a year-long, multidisciplinary study to investigate potential causes of increased flooding along the Navasota River south of Lake Limestone. Guided by the interests of local stakeholders, researchers analyzed the potential impacts of the Sterling C. Robertson dam on Lake Limestone on downstream flooding. The study identified multiple drivers of flooding acting at a watershed scale.
