Nature-Based Flood Management Works Best, Costs Less, Benefits Everyone

Sign Bayou City Waterkeeper’s Petition!

Oct. 1, 2020

Bayou City Waterkeeper, a member of the international Waterkeeper Alliance, has started a petition to encourage City of Houston officials to invest in green and nature-based projects “that improve drainage, reduce flooding, and keep people out of harm’s way for generations to come.”

The nonprofit organization points out that “Houston’s focus on getting water quickly to the bayous places too much emphasis on traditional flood management techniques, at the cost of natural infrastructure projects that can provide multiple benefits to communities across our watershed.”

We agree!
