Bay Area Storm Surge Flood Forum
Coastal Texas Study team members from USACE’s Galveston District and the Texas General Land Office answered questions from local residents during the Bay Area Storm Surge Flood Forum held March 7 in Seabrook, Texas. Approximately 180 community members attended the two-hour presentation at the Bay Area Community Center at Clear Lake Park. During a question and answer panel, guests learned more about the tentatively selected Coastal Barrier Plan that works to reduce storm surge risks in the upper Texas coast. Community concerns were addressed by speakers from Rice University’s SPEED Center, The Galveston Bay Foundation, The Sierra Club-Houston Group, Bayou City Waterkeeper and Dr. John Jacob, The Galveston District USACE, and the Texas General Land Office.
