In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey caused extreme flooding across Houston and other areas of Southeast Texas. In response, our members developed a series of comprehensive policy recommendations to better manage Texas flood risk during extreme storms.
For more information, please download the report file below to learn more about the recommendations. Topics include lessons learned and the need for a more comprehensive approach to future Texas flood risk management and reduction.
Members of ASCE Texas Section’s Post-Hurricane Harvey Recommendations Task Committee prepared the report and released it to the public on August 15, 2018.
