Mitigate Flooding

The devastation after Hurricane Harvey in August 2017 continues to be felt today. We cannot prevent hurricanes, but we can mitigate the impacts  caused by flooding.

I will address and improve the storm drainage system’s capability to handle sheet flow.

I will ensure the structural integrity of the levees and the speed in which water is released.

I will ensure residents are given full notice prior to flood gates being opened.

I will address the need for a third detention area.
