February 11: Bayous, Reservoirs, Ponds, and More: Strategies for Inland Flood Mitigation

Flood control projects are massive, generational undertakings involving bayou conveyance, retention reservoirs, detention ponds, and private property buyouts. Join a conversation between Auggie Campbell and a senior representative from the Harris County Flood Control District to learn about flood mitigation efforts and the paramount need for regional collaboration to address the kind of cataclysmic flooding that doesn’t respect municipal boundaries.

Auggie Campbell is the executive director of the Association of Water Board Directors, the former president and CEO of the West Houston Association, and the co-founder of Houston Stronger, which has successfully advocated for billions of dollars in resilience funding from federal, state, and local public entities.
