Need to think about increasing detention size of existing neighborhoods and businesses developments. Also need to look at re-designing roads county wide that act like dams. Andre Aycoth

Texas including Galveston County has been in a prolonged drought for years. It is wrong to think that the fluke of 50+ inches of rain during Harvey affects what normally occurs. Flooding occurs because what we have now is not properly maintained. Fix the storm drain systems, drainage ditches and bayous before doing anything else. It is better to fix what we have now, then to throw up our hands and say it’s inadequate so why fix it!

Is fooding or flooding?
