Twelve steps Houston can take to address our flooding problem
The Houston region has a major flooding problem. Denying this fact does a disservice to us all, because flooding will only get worse in the future as the intensity and frequency of severe rain events increases.
If we do not admit that we have a problem, we will never focus the resources and the effort that this problem demands. We must get past the belief that telling the truth about it will be bad for the community and an indication of governmental failure. Nothing could be further from the truth.
