SJRA now includes flood control in its mission

The GOLDEN HAMMER, a Montgomery county web-based news source, reports that the San Jacimto River Authority (SJRA) has officially added flood control to its mission.  The move comes in response to a directive by Governor Abbott to consider ways to protect downstream residents from flooding. This is good news for flood-wary Kingwood residents. It comes just weeks after the governor appointed two Kingwood residents, Kaaren Cambio and Mark Micheletti to the SJRA board.

These are two good first steps in response to the public outcry after Harvey. We now need to turn attention and awareness into action.
