From the current City of Pasadena CityGram:
If the steady rain has you more focused on issues like flood prevention, your input can now part of new flood prevention study. On Thursday, July 21, the City will be hosting the last of three public meetings focused on obtaining information from citizens as part of a new study evaluating the extent and causes of flooding in the Armand Bayou, Cotton Patch Bayou and Glenmore Ditch watersheds, and alternative drainage solutions.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Odell Harrison Recreation Center, 415 Delta (Cotton Patch area). The study is being funded 50% by the City of Pasadena and 50% through a grant from the Texas Water Development Board.
“The ultimate goal is to use research and citizen input to develop a plan which, when implemented, will reduce the existing flooding that occurs within these areas,” said Sam Metzger, engineering coordinator. The study should be completed by late 2006.
