I-10 flood mitigation ponds

One of the public meetings held last week was to discuss plans for some flood mitigation ponds around I-10 near the Heights. Robin has some information on what is currently being proposed, plus some background info on the project if you need it.

Be sure to reference "IH-10 detention ponds" in your letter and mail it to:

TxDOT -- Director of Project Development
PO Box 1386 Houston TX 77251-1386

You have until June 18 to give your feedback to TxDOT on this, so speak now or forever hold your peace.

Compare cubic volume displacement required to make the pond to the same cubic volume displacement along the sides of the downstream bayou and you will better understand how effective the pond is.
