Ed Browne, the President of Super Neighborhood #10 and the Chair of Residents Against Flooding and the Flood and Drainage Committee of the Super Neighborhood Alliance, sent me the following announcement:
Collusion or Incompetence: Flooding in West Houston
On March 20th, at the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Memorial City District Drainage Coalition (dba Residents Against Flooding), well-known Environmental Attorney Jim Blackburn will present Collusion or Incompetence: Flooding in West Houston, his assessment of the current state of drainage in West Houston which he believes is a microcosm of problems occurring throughout the City of Houston.
Per Mr. Blackburn, “From Addicks and Barker reservoirs to more general issues on Buffalo Bayou to the flooding associated with TIRZ 17, a pattern of governmental and private sector involvement in human generated flooding is becoming more and more apparent and troubling.”
Please join us for this important discussion:
March 20th @ 7:00 p.m.
Memorial Middle School Auditorium
Blackburn has been involved in many environmental and flooding-related issues over the years. I saw him speak back when the Katy Corridor Coalition was trying to influence the I-10 expansion project, and he’s worth listening to. Check it out if you can.
